Administrative/Biographical history: The Narberth Rural District Council was set up under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1894.

The Rural Sanitary Authority had the same boundaries as the Narberth Poor Law Union, ie, the whole of the area of the later Rural District Council plus various Carmarthenshire parishes.

The Rural District Council was merged with Pembroke Rural District Council by the Local Government Act 1972 to form South Pembrokeshire District Council.
