The parishes and chapelries in the city of London and the county of Middlesex are listed below, with the jurisdiction(s) into which they fell indicated as follows:

C: Commissary Court of London (London division); L: Archdeaconry of London; M: Archdeaconry of Middlesex; A: Peculiar Deanery of the Arches; D: Peculiar Deanery of Croydon; P: Peculiar of the Dean & Chapter of St Paul's; K: Peculiar of St Katherine-by-the-Tower; W: Peculiar of the Dean & Chapter of Westminster; S: Archdeaconry Court of Surrey; (diocese of Winchester) – parishes in Southwark were still in that county in 1858 (see Surrey).

Numbers refer to the map.

This list is based, for the city, on that in Lewis's Topographical Dictionary published in 1831, and includes places that may have been chapelries within other parishes and subsequently became parishes in their own right. Parishes were in the city or in its immediate vicinity unless otherwise stated.
