Holy Trinity Church opened in 1819. The town population had increased due to the Industrial Revolution and original parish church of St Peter was too small to accommodate the growing congregation. Funds to build the church were provided by Benjamin Haigh Allen, a local Justice of the Peace and wealthy businessman.

A report on the state of the Holy Trinity churchyard was published in the Huddersfield Chronicle (7 June 1851, p 4 and 5). It indicated that the churchyard provided 2044 graves but that 2221 interments had taken place. The crypt was described as objectionable. All-in-all the 1851 report supported the call for the establishment of a publicly-funded cemetery in Huddersfield.
