Custodial history:
Moss Side was a separate township in the Parish of Manchester, until 1856 when a Local Board was set up; in this year a small, detached portion of the township was joined to the Rusholme Local Board. Moss Side became an Urban District Council in 1894 and in November 1904, the district was incorporated in the City of Manchester. For Poor Law purposes it was in the Chorlton-upon-Medlock Union of Poor Law Guardians from 1837, being merged with other townships into the township of South Manchester in 1910
The records were transferred from the Rates Department and the Committee Clerk's Department in the Manchester Town Hall in 1958. The Library has the Official Calendar of the Moss Side Urban District Council 1895-6 to 1904-5, except 1896-7 and 1898-9 (Ref 352.04273 Mol).
