The cornerstone of the Church was laid on the 29th September 1847 and it was consecrated on December 9th 1848. It is a Grade II listed building. The first burial was a 5-day-old boy on 20th October 1849, and the last on 17th October 1982.
St Michael’s was incorporated into St Nicholas Newchurch in 1985. The church was made redundant on 1st December 2001 and subsequently converted to residential accommodation. The present accessibility of the churchyard is not known.
Further details, including baptism, marriage and burial register transcripts, memorial inscriptions, and a graveyard plan are at http://www.lan-opc.org.uk/Rossendale/Lumb/stmichael/index.html. The small number of MIs suggests that most of the 941 graves are unmarked.
