Brentford was first formed in 1894 as as urban district in western Middlesex comprising the neighbouring parishes of Old Brentford and New Brentford. The urban district was abolished in 1927 when it was merged with neighbouring Chiswick Urban District to form Brentford and Chiswick Urban District. Brentford and Chiswick was made a Municipal Borough in 1932 and was abolished in 1965 to become part of the London Borough of Hounslow in Greater London.
