Custodial history:
The foundation stone of Holy Trinity was laid on 13 May 1847 and the church consecrated on 12 February 1848. Services had previously been held in a former brewhouse. A District was assigned from the parish of Oldham by Order in Council 7 October 1844, (London Gazette, 22 October 1844.) Part of the parish was transferred to All Saints, Northmoor, by Order in Council, 9 May 1892 (London Gazette, 13 May 1892) Part of St. Mark's, Heyside, was assigned to Holy Trinity, by Order in Council, 13 December 1957 ('London Gazette, 17 December 1957). By Order in Council 9 February 1978, (London Gazette, 14 February 1978,) Coldhurst became part of the parish of Oldham, though Holy Trinity remained as a District Church.
The records were deposited in the Library as Diocesan Record Office in April 1989 by Rev. L.W.C. Featham.
