Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea

Group  From 1965 

The borough was formed in 1965 by the merging of the separate former boroughs of Kensington and Chelsea. It was originally planned to call it just Kensington, but Chelsea was added after local protests.

The vestries of Kensington and of Chelsea were precursors to this body.
