Cannon Street Road is now in the London Borough of Tower Hamlets, created on 1 April 1965, within the administrative area of Greater London.

Previously, Cannon Street Road was in the Metropolitan Borough of Stepney (established 1900) in the County of London (established 1889), both of which entities were abolished in 1965. Until 1927, the locality had also been part of the civil parish of St George in the East (established in 1729, abolished 1927 to be absorbed into Stepney Borough parish, which was abolished 1965), which was in the former County of Middlesex until 1889. From 1856 to 1900, the Vestry (council) of the Parish of St George in the East was a local authority, with functions similar to that of a local government district council.

Registration Districts:

From 1 July 1837 - St George in the East
From 1 January 1926 - Stepney
Since 1 January 1983 - Tower Hamlets (which now holds the registers)
