Parish History[edit | edit source]

Burton upon Trent Christ Church is an Ecclesiastical Parish in the county of Staffordshire, created in 1825 from Burton upon Trent St Modwen, Staffordshire Ancient Parish. Other places in the parish include: Branston.

Christ Church, erected in 1844 on ground given by his lordship, and to which a district has been also assigned, is a beautiful structure in the early English style, with a square tower surmounted by a graceful spire, and contains 1000 sittings, whereof 750 are free; the cost, £3000, was raised by subscription, aided by public grants. The living is a perpetual curacy, in the patronage of the Vicar of Burton; and has a parsonage, of which likewise the marquess gave the site.
