Town of Haverfordwest
Haverfordwest (in Welsh: Hwlffordd), a town on the Western Cleddau river in southwest Wales, has a population of about 12,000. It lies about 60 miles west of Swansea.
Until 1974, Haverfordwest was a municipal borough in the county of Pembrokeshire, of which it was (and is) the county town. From 1974 until 1996, it was within the district of Preseli (which consisted of the northern part of Pebrokeshire) in the newly-formed county of Dyfed. In 1996, Preseli was merged with the South Pembrokeshire district to form the reconstituted county of Pembrokenshire, a unitary authority (within the ceremonial, or preserved, county of Dyfed).
Haverfordwest Jewish Community
There were a small number of Jewish residents of Haverfordwest in the mid-nineteenth century, although there was never an organised Jewish congregation or Jewish cemetery.
