== Parish History
Holy Trinity Church was the most prominent church in the seaside town of Hoylake, Wirral, England, until its demolition in 1976. It was consecrated on 1 November 1833, and in 1860 it became the Parish Church of Hoose, Little Hoose and Great Hoose. Prior to the construction of Hoyl Trinity, the area of Hoylake and Meols was in the parish of St Bridget, West Kriby. During its lifetime, its 2 daughter churches were built; St. Hildeburgh's in Hoylake, which is now used as the parish church for Hoylake and St John the Baptist in Meols, one of the few churches with that dedication. All that remains today of Holy Trinity is the graveyard, housing over 200 gravestones and memorials.
