Pugin & Pugin (fl. 1851–c. 1958) was a London-based family firm of church architects, founded in the Westminster office of Augustus Welby Northmore Pugin (1812–1852). The firm was succeeded by his sons Cuthbert Welby Pugin (1840–1928) and Peter Paul Pugin (1851–1904) after the death of their elder brother, Edward Welby Pugin (1834–1875). They were later joined by Sebastian Pugin Powell and Charles Henry Cuthbert Purcell until the latter’s death in 1958.[1]

The firm worked exclusively in the Gothic Revival style, and produced many buildings, alterations and furnishings for the Roman Catholic Church, such as the sanctuary of the Sacred Heart Church, Liverpool.
