Hendon South (UK Parliament constituency)
Hendon South was a constituency in the former Municipal Borough of Hendon (later subsumed into the London Borough of Barnet) which returned one Member of Parliament to the House of Commons of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It was created for the 1945 general election, when the existing Hendon constituency was split into two parts, and abolished for the 1997 general election.
The constituency included the wards of Childs Hill, Golders Green, Hampstead Garden Suburb, and West Hendon. At the 1997 redistribution the wards of Childs Hill, Golders Green, and Hampstead Garden Suburb were transferred to the new constituency of Finchley and Golders Green along with wards from the old Finchley constituency, while West Hendon was transferred to the new Hendon constituency.
1945-1974: The municipal borough of Hendon wards of Central Hendon, Childs Hill, Garden Suburb, Golders Green, and Park.
1974-1997: The London Borough of Barnet wards of Childs Hill, Garden Suburb, Golders Green, Hendon, and West Hendon.
