One night in 1871 Manningham Mill was totally destroyed by fire. Lister boldly decided to build a new mill on the site of the old one. However, this one would be even bigger and better than before. At its peak, eleven thousand people were employed there; it used 50,000 tons of coal per year and was the largest of its type in Europe.
Now there were so many people in Manningham that St Paul's church was bursting at the seams, despite being enlarged twice before 1867. Yet again, John Hollings dipped into his wallet and called on the services of Thomas Healey's son who designed the new church. It was built on land near Lister's mill and dedicated to St. Luke in 1881. Meanwhile, the congregation of St Jude's helped pay for the building of a church near White Abbey Road, which was dedicated to St Mary Magdalene in 1878.
Birth, marriages and deaths were kept by the government, from July 1837 to the present day. The civil registration article tells more about these records. There are several Internet sites with name lists or indexes. A popular site is FreeBMD.
