Stoke-on-Trent is a city in Staffordshire, England, with an area of 36 square miles. Stoke is polycentric, having been formed by a federation of six towns in the early 20th century.[1]


City of Stoke-on-Trent

The City of Stoke-on-Trent was formed by the 1910 amalgamation of the six Potteries towns of Burslem, Tunstall, Stoke-upon-Trent, Hanley, Fenton and Longton into the single county borough of Stoke-on-Trent. An anomaly in the history of English local government, this was the first union of its type and the only such event to take place until the 1960s. The 1910 federation was the culmination of a process of urban growth and municipal change that started in the early 19th century.[2]

Town of Stoke-upon-Trent

The town of Stoke-upon-Trent, commonly called Stoke, was incorporated as a municipal borough in 1874. [3]

Stoke-on-Trent Registration Districts

The Civil Registration District of Stoke-upon-Trent was created in 1837, and abolished in 1922 when the Stoke & Wolstanton Registration District was created by merging it with Wolstanton and parts of the surrounding districts. This organisation lasted until 1935, when a new district of Stoke-on-Trent was formed based on the city boundaries.

Details of the places included in each district, and the boundary changes can be found on the following GENUKI pages:
