Town of Walsall
Walsall is an industrial town in the English Midlands, to the northwest of Birmingham, with a population of approximately 170,000. Until 1974, Walsall was a county borough in the county of Staffordshire (and incorporated the town of Darlaston from 1966). In 1974, it became a metropolitan borough within the newly created metropolitan county of West Midlands (its area being increased at the time by the incorporation of adjoining areas) and, in 1986, it became a unitary authority when West Midlands lost its administrative county status, becoming purely a ceremonial and geographical county.
Walsall Jewish Community
Although the formal
Jewish congregation in Walsall was a Second World War creation, a
number of individual Jews lived there long before that period dating from the
first half of the nineteenth century.
