The inhabitants of the commune are known as Alériens or Alériennes
Allerey is located some 40 km north-west of Beaune and 30 km north by north-east of Autun. The D906 road passes through the western part of the commune but the village can only be accessed by smaller roads such as the D16 from the south which continues north-east to Arconcey, the D117A from the west which continues south-east to Arnay-le-Duc, and the D36 from Beurey-Bauguay in the north. The commune consists entirely of farmland except for the forested Bois de Come in the south-eastern corner.
The Ruisseau d'Angot rises in the west of the commune and flows south to join the Nailly river.
Allerey was the seat of a lordship in the Middle Ages and there was a Fortified house in the centre of the commune.
List of Successive Mayors
(Not all data is known)
In 2009 the commune had 169 inhabitants. The evolution of the number of inhabitants is known through the population censuses conducted in the commune since 1793. From the 21st century, a census of communes with fewer than 10,000 inhabitants is held every five years, unlike larger towns that have a sample survey every year.[Note 1]

Notes and references
- At the beginning of the 21st century, the methods of identification have been modified by law No. 2002-276 of 27 February 2002 , the so-called "law of local democracy" and in particular Title V "census operations" which allow, after a transitional period running from 2004 to 2008, the annual publication of the legal population of the different French administrative districts. For municipalities with a population greater than 10,000 inhabitants, a sample survey is conducted annually, the entire territory of these municipalities is taken into account at the end of the period of five years. The first "legal population" after 1999 under this new law came into force in 1 January 2009 and was based on the census of 2006.
