Custodial history:
The chapel of St. George, in the township of Little Bolton, in the parish of Bolton le Moors, was consecrated on 19 August 1796. A District was assigned to it from the parish of Bolton, by Order in Council, 11 August 1841, (London Gazette, 12 November 1841). The original area of the parish was reduced over the years. Part was added to St. John's, Little Bolton, by Order in Council, 6 April 1846, (London Gazette, 10 April 1846). Part was added to St. James the Apostle, Waterloo Street, by Order in Council, 22 April 1872, (London Gazette, 23 April 1872) Part was added to St. Matthew's, Bolton, by Order in Council, 26 October 1875, (London Gazette. 29 October 1875). Part was added to St. Luke's, Halliwell, by Order in Council, 23 October 1876, (London Gazette. 31 October 1876). Part was added to St. Paul's, Bolton, by Order in Council, 9 May 1891, (London Gazette. 12 May 1891). Part was added to St. Barnabas, Bolton, by Order in Council, 6 March 1896, London Gazette. 10 March 1896. By Order on Council, 19 January 1973, (London Gazette, 23 January 1973) St. George's, along with the parishes of Holy Trinity and St. Mark, was reunited with the parish of St. Peter, Bolton. St. George's church was declared redundant, by Order in Council, 25 June 1975, (London Gazette. 1 July 1975). An Order in Council of 19 January 1976, (London Gazette, 22 January 1976) permitted its use as a Music Centre. In 1983, by Order in Council, 19 October, (London Gazette, 27 October 1983) the redundant church of St. George could be leased as Museum and Craft Centre.
The records were deposited in the Library, as Diocesan Record Office, in November 1999 (Accession 1999/103), January 2000 (Accession 2000/12), by Canon Michael Williams, vicar of Bolton and in 2001.
