Seacombe (population about 15,000) is a district of the town of Wallasey on the northwest corner of the Wirral peninsula in northwest England and is situated on the western side of the River Mersey, opposite Liverpool. It was part of county borough of Wallasey, geographically in the county of Cheshire, until 1974 when Wallasey was incorporated into the newly-formed 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 were a few Jewish residents of Wallasey from at least the middle of the nineteenth century, although it was not until the early twentieth century that organised Jewish congregations were established in the town, including Seacombe Synagogue (see below), now defunct. See also Wallasey Hebrew Congregation (dealt with separately).
