In common with most of the greater Stamford Hill area, Cazenove Road is now in the London Borough of Hackney, an Inner London Borough created on 1 April 1965, within the administrative area of Greater London.

Previously Cazenove Road was in the somewhat smaller former Metropolitan Borough of Hackney (established 1900) in the County of London (established 1889), both of which entities were abolished in 1965.

The North London district of Stamford Hill extending into Upper Clapton, parts of Stoke Newington and Tottenham as well as some other adjoining areas, together include the largest concentration of Haredi Jews in Europe, all of whom generally tend to identify as being part of the greater Stamford Hill community.

Registration District:

From 1 July 1837 - Hackney
