Local Authority Districts:

Both Poet's Road and Mildmay Road, the addresses where the Synagogue had been situated, are actually just outside Dalston (in Canonbury and Kingsland) and are within the London Borough of Islington (whereas Dalston proper is in the London Borough of Hackney). Both of these Northeast London authorities are Inner London Boroughs created on 1 April 1965, within the administrative area of Greater London.

Previously, both roads were in the somewhat smaller former Metropolitan Borough of Islington (established in 1900, conterminous with the pre-existing parish of Islington), within the former County of London (established in 1889). Prior to 1889, the parish of Islington was in the former County of Middlesex.

Registration Districts:

1 July 1837 - Islington
1 April 1965 - London Borough of Islington (which would now hold any registers)
