The Bulkington Baptismal register, 1841–1861, records that: 'On Thursday, 15 August 1861, six families comprising 27 members left for Quebec, Canada, in consequence of the continued depression of the Ribbon trade… At the same time 83 houses were vacant in the parish. Nonetheless, ribbon production continued in Bulkington into the middle of the 20th century, though through small factory production rather than as a cottage industry.

The last factory, in Arden Road, closed in the early 1950s.

In July 1950, Bulkington Local Health Board was formed, under the Public Health Act 1848 and in 1894 this was converted into an urban district council.Bulkington was mentioned in the Domesday Book as Bochintone, meaning "estate associated with a man called Bulca".Today Bulkington is largely a commuter village for larger nearby urban centres such as Coventry, Nuneaton, Bedworth, Hinckley and Leicester.8.4% stated No Religion, 0.8% Other and 6.0% did not disclose.The village is served by four churches: the Anglican St James' Parish Church, Our Lady of the Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Ryton Methodist Church, and Bulkington Congregational Church.The 1830s saw a slump in the industry, due in part to the introduction of factory production at Coventry, and competition from cheap imports.
