Merton Urban District was an urban district in Surreymarker, Englandmarker, created in 1907 to cover the parish of Mertonmarker. Formerly, the parish had been part of the Croydonmarker Rural District since its formation under the Local Government Act 1894 but an increasing population lead to its creation as a separately administered area.

In 1913, the parish of Mordenmarker was transferred from the Croydon Rural District to the Merton Urban District and the district was renamed Merton and Morden Urban District.

In 1943, the council was granted a civic coat of arms incorporating Lions from the Garth Family arms and the fret from the arms of Merton Abbey. The motto, "In Libertate Vis", means "Our Strength is our Freedom".

The Urban District was abolished in 1965 by the London Government Act 1963 and its area merged with those of the Municipal Borough of Wimbledonmarker and the Municipal Borough of Mitcham to form the London Borough of Mertonmarker of Greater Londonmarker.
