My wife's parents were married in this church in 1932.  Their name was George and Grace [nee Howard ] Tilbrook and George died a few months before my wife Thelma was born in march 1936,  They lived in Andrew Street until moving to Barnhurst on the south side of Thames at height of blitz - Grace, her mother Ethel Howard and the two sisters Thelma [my wife] and Brenda.
Last year we discovered the Church closed shortly after WW2, became a Community Centre and closed down again in the 1960's to become Brick Lane Music Hall in the 1980's.
Can anybody tell us if and where all the graves were re-interred ?

My wife would like to find out this information and to hear if anybody remembers her family.
