The Vicars

Of the Curates at Lightcliffe, Heywood comments that

At Lightcliffe, there has been a great number of wretched drunken preachers in my time, as any I have known in any one place

This Foldout lists some of the people who have served at Saint Matthew's Church, Lightcliffe and Eastfield Chapel, Lightcliffe and Lightcliffe Old Church



In some cases, the date(s) shown here for the Vicar are approximate and refer to a year in which he was recorded as being in office.

References to the Incumbent often use the words Curate, Minister, Pastor, Perpetual Curate, Priest, or Rector where – for convenience – I have used the word Vicar

Please email me if you can add any further names, dates or other details to the information on this Page, or if you spot any errors
