Town of Malvern
The spa town of Malvern, with a population of 30,000, is situated at the foot of the Malvern Hills in western Worcestershire, about 35 miles southwest of Birmingham.
It was part of the Urban District of Malvern (formed in about 1900) in the County of Worcestershire until 1974, when it became part of the District of Malvern Hills in the newly-formed and short-lived County of Hereford and Worcester. In 1998 the county reverted to the two original historical counties and there were a number of boundary changes.
A small Jewish community developed in Malvern during World War II, comprised largely of evacuees from heavily populated areas, but it appears to have become defunct sometime prior to the end of the War.
