Ordnance Survey reference SJ 365572.
There is believed to have been a chapel of ease in Rossett by the early seventeenth century.
The new parish church was built in 1841, and was consecrated as Christ Church. It was apparently of somewhat eccentric design, both inside and outside - Archdeacon Thomas describes its alleged defects in considerable detail.
The foundation stone of a completely new building was laid on 1 May 1891, after the Vicar (Rev. Vowler Wickham) had spent many years in attempting to have something done. He died just before the church was due to be consecrated; and he was buried in the churchyard on the day of the consecration - All Saint's Day, 1892.
The Clwyd FHS website has a photograph of the church.
