This Church has (or had) a graveyard.

Note: any church within an urban environment may have had its graveyard closed after the Burial Act of 1853. Any new church built after that is unlikely to have had a graveyard at all.

Church History

This Place of Worship was founded in 1856, and we understand it is still open.

Brackenfield's Holy Trinity Church was built in 1856 to replace an earlier building of the same name, half a mile from the village. Kelly's Directory of 1932 describes it as "an edifice in the Decorated style, consisting of chancel with memorial chapel, nave of three bays, north aisle, porch, vestry, and a north-west tower with spire, containing 3 bells". There is a brass screen erected to the memory of Gladwin Turbutt esq. by his Ogston tenantry in 1872, and at the west end of the church is the old screen of the original Trinity chapel, restored, with four of the oak benches, in 1881. The chancel was ornamented with carved oak in 1906 by the parishioners. There are 230 sittings. The parish records, for the chapel, date from 1845, and of the church from 1857.

There is a memorial to the parishioners who fell in the Great War, 1914-1918 in the churchyard, which has a sizeable extension to the east of the original plot.

Brackenfield was created a parish in 1844 from the parish of Morton, and includes the township of Woolley.


Now or formerly Church of England.

If more than one congregation has worshipped here, or its congregation has united with others, in most cases this will record its original dedication.
