Tameside Metropolitan Borough was created in 1974 from the following towns:

•    Ashton-under-Lyne
•    Audenshaw
•    Denton
•    Droylsden
•    Dukinfield
•    Hyde
•    Mossley
•    Mottram-in-Longdendale  
•    Stalybridge

We are the only family history group meeting in Tameside and act as a focal point for the whole of the borough.  Tameside straddles the Lancashire/Cheshire border with half of the towns actually in Lancashire. This can create some rather complex boundary issues when dealing with pre Tameside sources and parishes.

NEW - We are currently looking for a new venue, and are hoping to offer a hybrid sessions of both Zoom and face to Face meetings. More news as soon as we get it.



Our old Dukinfield Group surname list has had to move and can now be found at http://tamesidefamilyhistory.co.uk/surnames.htm
