Chester le Street Rural District Council

Physical description: 6 SERIES
Immediate source of acquisition:

Accession numbers T305, T480 and 219 (part)

Custodial history:

Records of Birtley and Lamesley CP's were transferred to Tyne and Wear Archives Service as part of the records of Gateshead Metropolitan Borough.

Administrative / biographical background:

Part of the County of Durham from its creation in 1894 to its abolition in 1974. On 1 April 1974 Lamesley Civil Parish and part of Birtley Civil Parish became part of the newly-created metropolitan district of Gateshead. Records relating to these areas were therefore transferred to Gateshead. Another part of Birtley became part of Sunderland Metropolitan District, along with parts of Harraton C.P. and South Biddick C.P. The remainder of the former rural district became part of the newly-created Chester le Street District.
