CONTEXT

Administrative/Biographical history: Rhymney Urban District Council (UDC), Monmouthshire, was established under the provisions of the Local Government Act 1894 and comprised the parishes of Llechryd and Rhymni. The Council comprised councillors and a chairman and initially replaced Rhymney Local Board. Its responsibilities included sanitary services, sewerage, refuse collection, housing, streets, cemeteries, libraries, parks, controls on buildings such as petrol stations, and licensing of public entertainments. UDCs were administered by a number of committees and by appointed officers including a Clerk, Treasurer, Medical Officer of Health, Surveyor and Sanitary Inspector. Rhymney UDC was abolished in 1974 following local government reorganisation, and its functions were assumed by Rhymney Valley District Council.
