Notes:

Earliest building on the site was opened on the 26 August 1808. This was replaced in 1884 by a larger church designed by C. O. Ellison (Liverpool). This was in a free renaissance style in red brick with terracotta dressings complete with a south east tower with balustrade top. This building was given a southern extension in 1929 and the whole demolished and replaced with a new church on a smaller site, formerly covered by the southern extension, in 2000.
