Be careful! A unit may cover just the town or village, but it may include a big surrounding area. For example, in England and Wales rural districts — units with RD or RSD suffixes — may even exclude the places they are named after. The "Units covering this place" tab lists units whose boundaries contained Melbourne.

We know of no constituencies that were named after Melbourne; where constituencies had more than one name, we base this on their "preferred" name. Constituencies that covered the point location we hold for Melbourne will be listed on the "Units covering this place" tab. You can search for constituencies or other units that covered a particular location you are interested in by typing a postcode into our home page, or by using our Historic maps section, zooming in, selecting the Information option, and then clicking on your location.

Please note that these units are listed here because their boundaries covered the point location we hold for Melbourne. You can search for units that covered the particular location you are interested in by typing a postcode into our home page, or by using our Historic maps section, zooming in, selecting the Information option, and then clicking on your location. Units will also not be listed here if we hold no computerised boundaries for them, such as Registration sub-Districts and Sanitary Districts.
