Name of creator
In 1901, a temporary church with 150 sittings was erected on Grove Road, Lakenham, Norwich. This building was licensed for marriages in 1910. On 4 August 1932, work started on a permanent church, which was designed by the architect, Cecil Upcher. The first portion of the building was dedicated on 1 October 1933, and the church was finally consecrated by the Bishop of Norwich on 20 May 1937. The church continued as a chapel of ease to the parish church of St John the Baptist and All Saints, Lakenham until St Alban's was constituted a separate parish by Order in Council of 30 September 1949. St Alban's subsequently became part of the Lakenham Group, with St Mark's, Lakenham.
