The upper portion of the parish of Sedgley adopted the "Local Government Act, 1858," May 28, 1867, and was governed by a Local Board until, under the provisions of the "Local Government Act, 1894 " (56 & 57 Vict. cap. 73), the present Urban District Council was established ; the remaining portion is included in Coseley urban district.

The South Staffordshire Water Works Company supply the inhabitants with water.

The register dates from the year 1558. The living is a vicarage, average tithe rent-charge £329, net yearly value, £380, with 7 acres of glebe and residence, in the gift, of the Earl of Dudley, and held since 1888 by the Rev. Thomas Greenall Swindell, of Charsley's Hall, Oxford, and surrogate.

There are Church of England mission churches at the Straits, Gospel End and Swan Village, the latter belonging to the parish of St.Chads, West Coseley. Here is also a Catholic chapel erected in 1823 and dedicated to All Saints, and Wesleyan, Primitive Methodist and Congregational chapels.

Nails, rivets, chains, fireirons, locks and iron safes are made here. The district abounds in coal, lime and ironstone. The charities amount to about £36 yearly, together with a weekly dole of bread to the poor. Miss Fellowes's charity of £400 is also for the poor. The Earl of Dudley is lord of the manor and principal landowner. The parish for local purposes is divided into Sedgley and Coseley.
