A History of the Parish of St. Vincent de Paul, Bramhall
From about 1944, Mass was originally said by a priest from Hazel Grove at the Ladybrook Hotel, Bramhall Green, and this continued until at least 1952. From this time, there is no reference to the Ladybrook Hotel in the Diocesan year book. For several years, the year book refers to Bramhall and Cheadle Hulme as a single parish, and there are no references to Mass being said in Bramhall itself.
From 1965 to 1968, Mass was said in the Scout Hut on Linney Road, and in 1968, the present church building was erected on Handley Road, Bramhall, costing £18,000 and able to seat 280 people. Fr. Edward Carroll, parish priest at Our Lady and the Apostles in Stockport, was responsible for the building and on the 8th of December, 1968, St. Vincent de Paul's became a Chapel-of-Ease served from Our Lady and the Apostles. Fr. Carroll gave it to the local people as a gift from Our Lady and the Apostles. After a number of years, Fr. Ernest Daly, a retired RAF Chaplain and priest of the diocese, moved into the area to be with his sisters, and he supplied Masses at St Vincent de Paul's.
