Local Government Districts:

Finsbury Park, an area in North London, is not to be confused with the district of Finsbury, several miles to the south, close to the centre of London.

Seven Sisters Road and Finsbury Park straddle three London Boroughs, the London Borough of Hackney (the locality in which the synagogue was situated, at least since the 1940's), the London Borough of Haringey and the London Borough of Islington, all created on 1 April 1965, within the administrative area of Greater London.

Previously the locality of the synagogue buildings was in the Metropolitan Borough of Stoke Newington (established 1900) in the County of London (established 1889), both of which entities were abolished in 1965.

Registration Districts:

From 1 July 1837 - Hackney
From 1 April 1930 - Stoke Newington
Since 1 July 1979 - Hackney (which would now hold any registers)
