When the parish was transferred to Warwickshire it became part of Stratford on Avon Rural District.

The first mention of a post office in the village is in July 1849, when a type of postmark known as an undated circle was issued. The post office closed in 1973.

In the Domesday Book (1086) Alderminster is shown as part of the land of St Mary's of Pershore, in Pershore Hundred, Worcestershire. In 1884 the village is shown on a map as consisting only of a few houses. The Minster and Parish Church of St Mary and the Holy Cross is of 12th century origin. The church has been listed Grade II* since 1967.
