Hemel Hempstead Rural District
It was created in 1894 by the Local Government Act 1894, based on the Hemel Hempstead rural sanitary district. It originally included the town of Hemel Hempstead, which was made a municipal borough in 1898. The parishes in 1970 were
- Chipperfield (created from part of Kings Langley in 1959)
- Great Gaddesden
- Kings Langley
The district constituted two detached parts, north and south of Hemel Hempstead. Bovingdon, Chipperfield, Flaunden and Kings Langley were in the southern part, with Flamstead, Great Gaddesden and Markyate in the northern part.
