Village population has fluctuated between 150 and 200 since 1801 and currently remains at just below 200, with an equal distribution of males and females.[citation needed]

North Cockerington was formerly known as Cockerington St Mary, distinguishing it from Cockerington St Leonard, now South Cockerington. In 1670 Sir Jarvis Scrope founded six tenements for poor people of North and South Cockerington.

The village has no shops or public houses. The former post office in Meadow Lane, once called Ashdene, is now Pump Cottage. The village school is North Cockerington Church of England Primary School. The school serves the villages of North and South Cockerington, Alvingham, Yarburgh as well as Louth itself.[2]

The Greenwich Prime Zero meridian line passes through the village.
