It increased for five Wakefield wards called East, North, South, West and Rural to 77,512 according to 2011 census.

It also became a county town of West Riding of Yorkshire. It was the seat of West Riding County Council from 1889 till 1974.


Along with railroad, many streams and lakes also played a significant role in economic growth of Wakefield.

At the beginning of 1900’s railroading was to the extreme with 25 trains in and out of Sanbornville every day.

In 1911, due to fire various rail yard buildings burned and operations centre shifted to Dover. After the emergence of electrification, need for ice reduced.
