Scope and Content
Administrative / Biographical History
Prior to 1894, monthly parish vestry meetings dealt with ecclesiastical matters, rates, and local issues. 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. In 1935, Eglwys Gymyn Parish Council absorbed Cyffig Parish Council. Community councils replaced parish councils under local government reorganization in 1974.
