Changes to County Boundaries

The county of Herefordshire has undergone numerous boundary changes over the years. In 1974 Herefordshire was merged with most of Worcestershire and the county borough of Worcester.

In 1998, the merger was abolished and Herefordshire became a unitary authority. The new district was formed from the Herefordshire parts of Malvern Hills and Leominster, along with Hereford and South Herefordshire.

Therefore, there is a chance that the records you are looking for may be held at Worcestershire City Council.
