Chester St. Oswald was one of the ancient churches of the City of Chester in Cheshire, England. It was the ecclesiastical parish in charge of a number of townships to the north, east and south of Chester, namely:

All of these townships became civil parishes in their own right in 1866. Many had links with other ancient parishes as well as St. Oswald's.

UKBMD and GENUKI describe it as "an ancient parish church housed in Chester Cathedral, serving part of the city of Chester. Closed in 1882 and succeeded by Chester: St. Thomas of Canterbury." The FamilySearch Wiki says the church was in Queen Street and after it was closed the congregation was served by the church of St.Thomas of Canterbury, Parkgate Street.
