Chapelry History

Great Crosby was created a chapelry in 1749 from, and lying within Sefton, Lancashire Ancient Parish.

Historically a part of Lancashire, Great Crosby was a small village of Viking origin until the arrival of the railway in the 1840s. The village grew rapidly during the late 19th and early 20th century and merged with a number of distinct areas with their own character, to form the Great Crosby urban district.The Great Crosby urban district annexed Little Crosby in 1932. In 1937, the district was combined with the Waterloo with Seaforth urban district to form the municipal borough of Crosby which was in turn was absorbed into the new Metropolitan Borough of Sefton on 1 April 1974. These boundary changes defined the town of Crosby in its modern borders and shrank down the modern area of Great Crosby from the old urban district, making it an area of the modern town of Crosby which today is a separate area of Crosby to Blundellsands, Brighton-le-Sands, and Thornton.

St Luke's church was built in 1853 by the architect  A.E.Holme and consecrated By the Bishop of Chester on 26 December 1853. It replaced the earlier chapel of St Michael Great Crosby

Prior to the creation of the Diocese of Liverpool the parish was within the Chester Diocese.

The modern parish of St Luke is in the Sefton Deanery of the Diocese of Liverpool.

"CROSBY, GREAT, a chapelry, in the parish of Sefton, union and hundred of West Derby, S. division of the county of Lancaster, 6 miles north by west of Liverpool. The chapel, dedicated to St. Luke, in about 1749. A Roman Catholic chapel dedicated to St. Peter was built in 1826."[1]
