West Derby St Mary was created a chapel of ease by 1688 from and lying within the boundaries of [[Walton on the Hill St Mary, Lancashire]] ancient parish.  
+
DERBY, WEST St Mary, a district '''chapel of ease''' as of 1688, and the head of a union, in the parish of [[Walton on the Hill St Mary, Lancashire]], hundred of West Derby, S. division of the county of Lancaster, 4 miles northeast of Liverpool. St James' church was built, in 1847. St Jude's church, in Hardwick-street, was built in 1841. There are also churches at Stanley (or Old Swan), Knotty-Ash, and Edge-Hill, which places are separately described. A '''Roman Catholic''' chapel, called Gillmoss chapel, is situated in West Derby, about a mile from Croxteth Hall; it was built in 1823.<ref>Lewis, Samuel A., ''[http://british-history.ac.uk/report.aspx?compid=50918#s10 A Topographical Dictionary of England]''  (1848), pp. 32-46. Adapted. Date accessed: 08 October 2013.</ref>  
 
+
Other places in the parish include: Stanley and Kensington.  
+
 
+
The earlier chapelry building was replaced in 1853/4 by present church designed by&nbsp; Gilbert G. Scott built of red sandstone with Yorkshire stone pillars and is situated in the heart of West Derby Village at the entrance to Croxteth Park.It is regarded as a fine example of Scott’s work and has windows by Clayton and Bell together with some fine wood-work in the Chancel and Sanctuary. The style is 14th century Gothic, but because of the great expense of providing secure foundations for the tower, the original more elaborate design had to be significantly modified. The whole cost was raised by voluntary subscriptions! The building cost £8,000. The tower, marked by three turrets of matching size and a larger one which includes the staircase cost another £4,000 and was built at the expense of Mr Pemberton Heywood. It is 30 feet square and over 160 feet high. The nave is 72 feet by 50 feet and the chancel 41 feet by 25 feet.<br>
