Borough of Southend-on-Sea
The seaside resort of Southend-on-Sea (which also includes the towns of Westcliff-on-Sea and Leigh-on-Sea) is in southeast England, lying on the northern shore of the Thames estuary, and has a population of nearly 160,000. It was a county borough from 1914, until 1974, when it became a local government district (later borough) of the county of Essex. In 1998, it became a unitary authority taking over those responsibilities previously exercised by the county council.
The Southend Jewish Community
The Southend Jewish community developed at the end of the
nineteenth century, primarily from London's East End, many of the Jewish
residents settling in Westcliff-on-Sea and Leigh-on-Sea.
