This paper is concerned with iterative methods for parabolic functional differential equations with initial boundary conditions. Monotone iterative methods are discussed. We prove a theorem on the existence of solutions for a parabolic problem whose right-hand side admits a Jordan type decomposition with respect to the function variable. It is shown that there exist Newton sequences which converge to the solution of the initial problem. Differential equations with deviated variables and differential integral equations can be obtained from our general model by specializing given operators.
