Grimsby Jewish Community
(North East Lincolnshire)

Town of Grimsby

Grimsby, also known as Great Grimsby, is a seaport of about 90,000 inhabitants located on the southern bank of the Humber estuary in eastern England. Until 1974, Grimsby was a county borough in the administrative county of Lindsey, one of the three Parts into which Lincolnshire was divided.  From 1974, it formed the greater part of the Borough of Great Grimsby, a district of the now defunct administrative county of Humberside. On the abolition of Humberside in 1996, Great Grimsby was merged with the adjoining borough of Cleethorpes to form North East Lincolnshire, a unitary authority, treated for ceremonial purposes as part of the county of Lincolnshire.
