 Town of Hoylake

Hoylake (population about 6,000) is a seaside town situated on the northwest corner of the Wirral peninsula, on the eastern side of the mouth of the Dee River Estuary, in northwest England. Hoylake was part of the Urban District of Hoylake, in the county of Cheshire, until 1974, when it was incorporated into newly-formed the metropolitan borough of Wirral in the metropolitan county of Merseyside. In 1986, Wirral became a unitary authority, when the metropolitan county of Merseyside lost its administrative status, becoming purely a ceremonial county.

Jewish Community

There was a small Jewish community in Hoylake from the mid-twentieth century, with an organised Jewish congregation, until the latter part of that century.
