In 1871 the London & North Western Railway which had absorbed both companies closed both of these stations and amalgamated all the services at a new Lichfield Trent Valley station on the current site. Lichfield also has the more central Lichfield City which is the next stop along the Cross-City Line.
Once the high-level platforms were through platforms on a route to Burton-on-Trent but the platforms were closed in 1965 when services between Lichfield City and Burton-on-Trent ceased (the lines themselves remained open for freight and diversions) before being re-opened in 1988 as the terminus of Cross-City Line was extended from Lichfield City . The low-level platforms now serve the Rugby-Stafford section of the WCML. The station was upgraded in the early 2010s with a new station building and a larger car park.
