Previously, Great Garden / Greatorex Street was in the Metropolitan Borough of Stepney (established 1900) within the County of London (established 1889), both of which entities were abolished in 1965.

The part of the street north of Old Montague Street (some 600 feet) was in the civil parish of Mile End New Town and the part south of Old Montague Street (some 300 feet) was in the civil parish of Whitechapel. Both civil parishes were in the former County of Middlesex until 1889 and each formed a constituent part of the Whitechapel District from 1856 to 1900

The civil parish of Mile End New Town was abolished in 1921, being absorbed into the civil parish of Whitechapel, which itself was abolished in 1927 to be absorbed into Stepney Borough parish (until that parish's abolition in 1965).

Registration Districts:

From 1 July 1837 - Whitechapel
From 1 January 1926 - Stepney
From 1 January 1983 - Tower Hamlets (which now holds the registers)
