Custodial history:
Holy Trinity, Great Bolton, was built in 1825, and consecrated in 1826. It was one of the so-called 'Waterloo Churches', built under an Act of Parliament of 1818, as a thanksgiving for the successful battle of Waterloo. A District was assigned to Holy Trinity, by Order in Council, 11 August 1841, (London Gazette, 12 November 1841), from the parish of Bolton. Part of the parish of Holy Trinity was assigned to St. Mark's, Bolton, by Order in Council, 27 June 1866, (London Gazette, 29 June 1866), and a further part to St. Bartholomew's, Great Lever, by Order in Council, 19 May 1880, (London Gazette, 28 May 1880). By Order in Council, 19 January 1973, (London Gazette, 23 January 1973), the parish of Holy Trinity, along with the parishes of St. George and St. Mark, were transferred to the parish of St. Peter, thus rejoining the ancient mother church of the parish of Bolton. The church of Holy Trinity was still used for services until it was declared redundant in 1993. It was then hoped to convert it to office units.
The records were transferred to the Library as Diocesan Record Office, in May 1995, November 1999 (Accession 1999/103), January 2000 (Accession 2000/12), April 2000 (Accession 2000/55) and 2001.
