The Urmston Coat of Arms


The Urmston Coat of Arms were officially granted on 10 June 1942. The chevron and martlets are from the heraldry of the local families of Asshawe and Hyde, and the griffin is from the arms of the de Traffords. The oak tree symbolises the preservation of the rural aspect of the district. while the anvil and waves represent water and refer to the River Mersey and the Ship Canal. The squirrel is taken from the arms of the de Ormeston family and the balance is an emblem of St. Michael, patron saint of the parish.
