Administrative and biographical history: Civil parish councils were established by the Local Government Act 1894, taking over civil functions of parish vestry meetings. 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. Rhosllanerchrugog Parish Council was located in the county of Denbighshire until 1974, when its roles were taken over by Rhosllanerchrugog Community Council and Denbighshire became part of Clwyd. It is now in Wrexham County Borough. During the Second World War, there was a War Comforts Society, and later a Welcome Home Fund for returning servicemen.
