Custodial history:
The corner stone was laid on 22 November 1837 and the church consecrated on 28 June 1839. A District was assigned to Emmanuel from the parish of Bolton by Order in Council, 11 August 1841, (London Gazette, 12 November). In 1844 part of the District was assigned to the new Christ Church by Order in Council, 23 May (London Gazette, 3 June) and in 1882 part to the new church of The Saviour, by Order in Council, 27th February (London Gazette, 3 March). Further alterations of the parish boundaries occurred when parts were transferred to St. George the Martyr, Daubhill, by Order in Council 3 May 1882 (London Gazette, 9 May), and part to the Saviour by Order in Council, 20 October 1898 (London Gazette, 25 October). In 1933 on the dissolution of Christ Church part of that parish returned to Emmanuel, by Order in Council, 24 July, (London Gazette, 28 July). Emmanuel was held in plurality with St. Paul's from 1966 (Order in Council, 8 August, London Gazette, 11 August). The parish of The Saviour was united with Emmanuel by Order in Council 4 February 1972 (London Gazette, 10 February) Emmanuel becoming the name for the united parish and its church the parish church. In 1976 Emmanuel was united with St. Paul's as St. Paul with Emmanuel, by Order in Council, 15 December, (London Gazette, 17 December), but both churches continue in use.
The records were deposited in the Library as Diocesan Record Office in September 1982 and December 1984 by Rev. R.J.N. Cook.
