Bricklaying Question

We are intending to box in a chimney at the first floor (not in the loft). it is a 1930s semi detached house. let me know your thoughts and things to watch out for. the intention is to gain space.

By boxing it in you mean bricking up the hole or just boarding over the hole? whichever way you do it you need to have a vent at the bottom about 2" above skirting height/central..a 9" x 3" should be adequate.
