This is a list of former Parliamentary constituencies in the United Kingdom
, organised by date of abolition. It includes UK Parliamentary constituencies
that have been abolished, including those that were later revived, but does not include constituencies that were merely renamed.
The date of creation of a constituency, in some cases, goes back to English and Welsh seats in the Parliament of England
and the Scottish constituencies in the Parliament of Great Britain
In some cases, constituencies in the unreformed House of Commons
first received a summons to send representatives to Parliament at a date considerably earlier than the one for which they always received a summons. These cases are indicated in a note.
No account is taken, in this article, of the temporary redistribution of constituencies used for the First
and Second Protectorate Parliaments
in the 1650s. See First Protectorate Parliament for a list of those constituencies.
