Stratford and Wolverton Rural District (1894-1919), Stratford and Wolverton Urban District (1919-20) and Wolverton Urban District (1920-1974) were local government districts in Buckinghamshire, England, covering the town of Wolvertonmarker and its environs.

It was created as a rural district in 1894 and took over the responsibility for the parishes in Buckinghamshire that had been part of the disbanded Potterspury Rural Sanitary District. It was redesignated an urban district in 1919, and in 1920 it was renamed Wolverton.

It initially consisted of the following civil parishes:



In 1919 New Bradwellmarker parish was added to the district. In 1927 Calverton, Stony Stratford East and Stony Stratford West were abolished as part of the Wolverton (Union of Parishes) Confirmation Order and the Wolverton parish was extended to cover these areas. New Bradwell was abolished as part of a county review order in 1934 and the area of the urban district and civil parish of Wolverton became coterminous.

Following the Local Government Act 1972, the district was abolished in 1974. Its former area became part of the new district of Milton Keynesmarker.
