Category:Townships and Chapelries

Historically, an ecclesiastical parish was centred around parish church and formed part of a larger diocese. Each parish could be divided into townships or chapelries — the latter having chapels of ease — some of which were then subdivided into two or more hamlets. During the 1800s, functions of the parish began to increasingly transfer to civil parish bodies, eventually leading to elected urban district councils.

The boundaries of the townships, as marked on the early 1890s O.S. maps, are indicated below, with the colour denoting the ecclesiastical parish. The market cross at the centre of Huddersfield is marked with a black dot.
