Town of Addlestone

The town of Addlestone is situated approximately five miles to the south-west of the administrative boundary of Greater London. It is now in the Borough of Runnymede, a local government district of the county of Surrey, formed in 1974 and subsequently granted borough status. Prior to 1974, it was part of in the Urban District of Chertsey, (created 1894) in the county of Surrey.

Jewish Community of Addlestone

The Jewish community in Addlestone was formed in the early 1940s, primarily by Jews evacuated from London during World War II. Following the end of the War, the community began to dwindle as many of the congregants' families had returned to London and ultimately, there were insufficient numbers to sustain an active congregation.
