A lot depends on date.  For example Limehurt Rural District which comprised Alt (Parkbridge), Lees, Crossbank, Hartshead, Knott Lanes, Waterhouses (DaisyNook), Woodhouses, Littlemoss, Taunton, Waterloo, Bardsley came to an end around 1953/4.  Districts were split between Ashton, Oldham, Failsworth etc.

Bardsley became part of Oldham as did Lees and Crossbank.  Not sure about Alt and Parkbridge.

Cockbrook, Hooley Hill, Luzley may be.  And when did Littlemoss become part of Manchester?

Pot Hill also heard it called "Little India" because of the names of the streets like Bengal Square.

That area was called 'Penny Meadow' long before that part of Katherine Street was re-named 'Penny Meadow'.

Yes, St. James and Holy Trinity are parishes, you missed out Christ Church and St. Gabriel's at Cockbrook.
