The Representation of the People Act 1918 reorganised constituencies throughout Great Britain. The bulk of the Hyde constituency was merged with parliamentary borough of Stalybridge to form the new seat of Stalybridge and Hyde. The Bredbury, Marple and Romiley areas passed to the Macclesfield constituency, while Offerton and Torkington were included in Knutsford.
