My grandfather's birth was registered at St Geo Hanover Sq - he gives his POB as Pimlico on one census and Chelsea on another.

Sorry, deleted because looked wrong, but will resubmit. (I found it from a google search, so does not matter that you were not a member then)
A member of genes in 2003 claimed
'Today, Pimlico is in the borough of Westminster but in the 1800's it was in the district of Hanover, sub district of Belgrave.'

The name 'Pimlico' does not actually show in the indices, which is why I deleted.
