A Vision of Britain through Time provides the following description of Creeting All Saints from John Marius Wilson's Imperial Gazetteer of England and Wales of 1870-72:

"CREETING-ALL SAINTS, a parish in Bosmere [registration] district, Suffolk: adjacent to the river Gipping and the Eastern Union railway, 1½ mile N of Needham-Market Post town: Needham-Market. Acres: with Creeting-St. Mary and Creeting-St. Olave, 3,115. Real property of [Creeting] All Saints alone: £2,355. Population: 333. Houses: 74. The property is much subdivided. The manor of [Creeting] All Saints belonged to the Bridgmans and the Crespignys. The living of [Creeting] All Saints, [Creeting] St. Mary, and [Creeting] St. Olave is a conjoint rectory in the diocese of Norwich. Value: £663. Patron: Eton College." The church is very ancient, but good. Charities, £57.

A Vision of Britain through Time describes Creeting All Saints as an ancient parish and a civil parish until 1884, but does not state what parish it was merged with at that time. More information is available about Creeting St. Mary than about Creeting St. Olave, so it is assumed that Creeting St. Mary became the one civil parish covering Creeting All Saints and Creeting St. Olave in 1884.
