- Description: Ceiriog Rural District Council, Denbighshire, was formed in 1935 by the amalgamation of Chirk and Llansilin Rural District Councils. It contained the parishes of Chirk, Glyntraian, Llanarmon Dyffryn Ceiriog, Llanarmon Mynydd Mawr, Llangadwaladr, Llangedwyn, Llanrhaeadr-ym-Mochnant, Llansanffraid Glyn Ceiriog and Llansilin. The council was composed of councillors and a chairman, elected for three years. They originally took over responsibility for local sanitation from the local sanitary authorities and their responsibilities included sanitary services, sewerage, refuse collection, maintaining local roads, cemeteries, parks, and licensing of public entertainments, water supply and later housing.

Ceiriog Rural District Council was abolished following local government reorganisation in 1974, being absorbed into the new Glyndwr District Council, in the county of Clwyd (the area is now split between Wrexham County Borough and Powys County Council).

A collection is arranged in order to show context. This means that it will be catalogued to preserve its original order where possible. The collection will be arranged into sub-sections, such as series, files, items, and these will all be clearly related. Archival collections often have folder type structure if they are catalogued to this level of detail. The researcher can then see the context of an individual item, such as a letter - they can see that it forms part of a series, and the series is within a larger collection.
