Administrative and biographical history: Civil parish councils were established by the Local Government Act 1894. The records can include minute books, financial statements, correspondence, copies of planning applications, and rate lists. Community councils replaced parish councils under the local government reorganization in 1974. Cerrigydrudion parish was located in the county of Denbighshire until 1974, when the Parish Council became a Community Council, and Denbighshire became part of Clwyd. It now lies in Conwy County Borough. The parish was part of Corwen Poor Law Union, along with Llanfihangel Glyn Myfyr, and was covered by Uwchaled and Hiraethog Rural District Councils.
