Town of Wallasey
Wallasey (population about 59,000) is a town situated on the northwest corner of the Wirral peninsula, on the western side of the River Mersey and adjoining the Irish Sea. Its most southeasterly section is Seacombe, which lies opposite Liverpool. Wallasey was a county borough geographically in the county of Cheshire until 1974 when it 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.
Although there was a small number of Jews in Wallasey from at least the middle of the nineteenth century, it was not until the early part of the twentieth century that organised Jewish congregations were established. Two such congregations were established, the Wallasey Hebrew Congregation (see below) and the Seacombe Synagogue (dealt with separately), both of which are now defunct.
