Custodial history:
The foundation stone of St Luke's was laid on 6 August 1864 on land donated by Sir Robert Gore Booth, and the church consecrated on 5 August 1865. A District was assigned from the parish of Eccles by Order in Council, 3 February 1866 (London Gazette, 6 February). Part of the original District was transferred to St Cuthbert's, Old Trafford, by Order in Council, 11 June 1902, (London Gazette, 13 June), while some was transferred from St Thomas's, Pendleton, by Order in Council, 16 February 1903, (London Gazette, 17 February). All Saints was carved out of the parish by Order in Council, 19 July 1910, (London Gazette, 26 July), but the two parishes were re-united as St Luke's becoming the parish church of the united benefice.
The following records were deposited in the Library as Diocesan Record Office in August and November 1983 by Rev R F Efemey
