There is some interesting information on the Church's own website: http://www.linthwaitechurch.org.uk/about which starts:
"Christ Church, Linthwaite was one of a number of Commissioners' Churches (also known as 'Waterloo' churches) built in Yorkshire in the late 1820s. The Parliamentary grant helped to provide six new churches in the Huddersfield area: Golcar, Lindley, Paddock, Longwood, South Crosland and Linthwaite. Designed by architect Peter Atkinson Jnr., the foundation stone of Christ Church was laid on 9th April 1827 and the building was consecrated on 6th October 1828. The site and ground for the graveyard was given by Mr James Roberts of Broad Oak, Linthwaite. The first Vicar was Revd Nicholas Padwick who held that post for eight years."

I would try a nearby Family History Society to ask your question, most likely maybe Huddersfield: http://www.hdfhs.org.uk/

You could also post on the West Yorkshire board of the Rootschat forum:
http://www.rootschat.com/forum/yorkshire-(west-riding)/

There are a couple of people who post there regularly who are incredibly knowledgeable about cemeteries and churchyards in the Huddersfield area. One was kind enough to locate a grave reference for me, visit the cemetery and even send me a photo of the gravestone. The inscription then enabled me to establish the facts of a story that had been handed down through several generations of my family!
