Grimsby Rural District

Grimsby Rural District was a rural district in Lincolnshire, England, part of the administrative county of Lindsey, from 1894 to 1974.

The district covered the town of Immingham and the parishes of Ashby-cum-Fenby, Aylesby, Barnoldby-le-Beck, Beelsby, Bradley, Brigsley, East Ravendale, Great Coates*, Habrough, Hatcliffe, Hawerby-cum-Beesby, Healing, Humberston, Irby, Laceby, Little Coates*, New Waltham (from 1961), Scartho*, Stallingborough, Waltham, Weelsby*, West Ravendale and Wold Newton.

The rural district was separate from the Grimsby county borough and the Cleethorpes municipal borough, which it surrounded on three sides. When the county of Humberside was formed in 1974, the Grimsby rural district and Cleethorpes town were combined to form the new borough of Cleethorpes. In 1996 the area became part of the new unitary authority of North East Lincolnshire.

Asterisks denote parishes that were abolished prior to 1974.
