Ferndale ward is an electoral ward in the London Borough of Lambeth, England. It contains parts of Brixton and Clapham. It includes the Brixton Academy.

Ferndale ward is located in the Vauxhall parliamentary constituency.

In the London local elections of 1968, the Conservatives took control of the Greater London Council on a landslide. Included in this was Lambeth, where the Conservatives also swept to power. In the previously safe Labour ward of Ferndale, they took all three seats. Third of the three elected was future Prime Minister John Major, seventy votes ahead of his nearest Labour rival. Major, who had grown up nearby, was made Chairman of the Housing Committee, and responsible for overseeing the building of several large council estates. However, in 1971, the trend was reversed, both in London as a whole and Lambeth. This time, Major contested Thornton instead, where the Conservatives had enjoyed a comfortable victory in 1968, but Labour took all three seats back, and Major came fifth overall, losing his place on the council.[1]
