[6] The church is in the ecclesiastical parish of Thorganby, which is in the Diocese of York. [7]

The nearest railway station in the 19th century was Escrick, some 5 miles (8 km) to the west. [13] However, in 1913, Thorganby gained its own station on the newly opened Derwent Valley Light Railway, which provided a link between York and Selby. [14] The station closed in 1926 to passengers, but remained open until 1964 for goods traffic. [15]

In the 2001 census, the parish had 241 residents, [16] and increasing by the 2011 census to 330. [1] In 2015, North Yorkshire County Council estimated the population to have risen again to 350. [17]
