Custodial history:
Didsbury in the Parish of Manchester, had its own parochial chapel from the fourteenth century, but did not become a separate parish til 1839. The district included different territory at different times but for many centuries included Didsbury, Withington, Burnage, and Heaton Norris. In the nineteenth century portions were split off to become separate parishes. From 1837 the township of Didsbury formed part of the Chorlton on Medlock Union of Poor Law Guardians, and from 1876 it lay in the area of the Withington Local Board, later Urban District Council. (See GB127.M10.24). It was incorporated with the City of' Manchester in 1904 and was in the Township of South Manchester for Poor Law purposes from 1910 to 1930.
These records were transferred from the Rates Department and the Committee Clerk's Department in the Manchester Town Hall in 1958.
