Congregation Data


Stamford Hill Congregation


35 Clapton Common, Upper Clapton, London E5

(Location: Clapton Common is a three-quarters of a mile section of the A107 running northwest from Upper Clapton Road to the road Stamford Hill (A10). Clapton Common forms part of the actual boundary between Stamford Hill and Upper Clapton, although the boundary has became blurred in recent years. The North London district of Stamford Hill extending into Upper Clapton, as well as parts of Stoke Newington, Tottenham and some other adjoining areas, include the largest concentration of Haredi Jews in Europe, as well as a number of other communities and congregations, who generally tend to identify as being part of the greater Stamford Hill community.)

Date Formed:

Prior to 1916(source)

Current Status:

Possibly closed in about 1918, but was probably the predecessor congregation for another congregation in the area.


Ashkenazi Orthodox


Independent, but possibly subsequently affiliated to a synagogal organisation

Local Government Districts:

In common with most of the Stamford Hill/Upper Clapton area, Clapton Common is now in the London Borough of Hackney, an Inner London Borough created on 1 April 1965, within the administrative area of Greater London.

It was previously in the somewhat smaller former Metropolitan Borough of Hackney (established 1900) in the County of London (established 1889), both of which entities were abolished in 1965.

Registration District:

Since 1 July 1837 - Hackney
