Yes like the famous Brompton Oratory. The loveliest RC church in England possibly.

While it may be more commonly used by Catholics, oratories simply refer to chapels that are not part of an actual church. Like the chapels at a cemetery.

There are examples of the term being used by the Anglican church, outside of the one at Hampton court.

The Liverpool oratory is an example. Its not in use any more, but was behind the Anglican cathedral, and used for services for burials near by.

Yes I agree. The "parish church" of the English RC elite in effect.
