No information about the bell but Pevsner says that it was built in 1880 -
1882 and the architect was J Oldrid Scott. Church demolished in 1971.
Described as large and ambitious the money coming from the Allsopp family. 


I can remember the church as I drove into Burton!

I have yet another query. Before 1969 there used to be a church called
Holy Trinity (where the present Focus DIY is) around 1969/70 the church
was pulled down. It was originally going to have a ring of 10 but It
ended up with a 40cwt Tenor! I would like to know more about it and what
happened to it. I assume it went back to the bell foundary and was
melted down.

Can any on enlighten me?
The church was built in 1881/2 and had a 200 ft spire with a clock in
the tower.
