Administrative/Biographical history: Civil parish councils were established by the Local Government Act 1894. The records contain mainly minute books, financial statements, correspondence, copies of planning applications, and rate lists. Burial boards were established by the Burial Act 1853 to allow parish vestries, borough councils or local boards of health to create and manage new cemeteries. After 1894, their powers could be taken over by parish councils in rural districts, as occurred with Llanddewi Brefi, Cardiganshire. Community councils replaced parish councils under the local government reorganization in 1974.
