The site for a new church at Pinfold was given by Abraham Brierley of Rochdale in September 1854 (L61/1/7/1) and St. Alban's was consecrated on 2 February 1856.

In 1867 part of the parish was assigned to the new District of Falinge by Order in Council, 4 November, (London Gazette, 5 November 1867). Parts of the Rochdale parish were added to St. Alban's by Orders in Council, 16 May 1871, (London Gazette, 19 Nay 1871), and 19 Nay 1884 (London Gazette, 50 Nay 1884).
