Burton-on-Trent Jewish Community

Although there was a small Jewish community in Burton-on-Trent in the early half of the twentieth centuries, there is no record of a synagogue being established. There was, however, a close relationship with the near-by community in Derby, whose minister acted a visiting teacher and shochet.
