Municipal Borough of Mitcham

Municipal Borough Of Mitcham

Mitcham was a local government district in north east Surrey from 1915 to 1965 around the town of Mitcham.

It was created in 1915 as an urban district from part of the abolished Croydon Rural District. It gained the status of municipal borough in 1934.

In 1965, under the London Government Act 1963, the municipal borough was abolished and its area combined with that of the Municipal Borough of Wimbledon and the Merton and Morden Urban District to form the present-day London Borough of Merton in Greater London.
