The chancel is of three bays with a north Lady Chapel which was added by Bodley in 1906. This was built as a Memorial to Canon James Peter Young. There was originally a mediaeval Chapel here which was demolished around 1720. The stained-glass is by Leonard Evetts.
South of the chancel is the Chapel of the resurrection by Sir Charles Nicholson, 1920. There was probably a previous side aisle to the chancel which was Rayner's Chantry from the mid-14th century.

During World War II, the church was damaged, particularly the north side and restored by Nicholson in 1950.
The organ is located in the west Gallery and is by Walker, 1951.
