Metropolitan Borough of Wirral
Wirral is a metropolitan borough in the county of Merseyside in the North West of England, comprising the northern part of the Wirral peninsula, across the Mersey estuary from Liverpool. It was created in 1974 upon the merger of several authorities (all then in the county of Cheshire), including the county boroughs of Birkenhead and Wallasey (which includes Seacombe) and the urban district of Hoylake. In 1986, Wirral became a unitary authority, when the metropolitan county of Merseyside lost its administrative status, becoming purely a ceremonial county.
The Wirral Jewish Community
Although there was a small number of Jews in the towns of the Wirral peninsula (particularlly Birkenhead) from the middle of the nineteenth century, it was not until the end of that century that organised Jewish congregations were established.
