Grimsby Synagogue
Grimsby Synagogue
The synagogue in Grimsby is situated in Heneage Road, which at one time was close to the centre of the busy fishing industry. Not far away was the fish docks and the corporation docks, and it would have been surrounded by housing. It certainly would have been within 2000 cubits of many of the population in accordance with Jewish Law of the Sabbath. Opposite in 1913 was built St. Luke’s, an Anglican Church, and next to St. Luke’s was St. Mary’s Roman Catholic Church which still stands proud on a small mound known as Holme Hill a rare piece of raised land in this predominantly flat once marshland. To the north of the synagogue, and almost attached to it was Holme Hill school, built in 1876, and the new Board School.

According to the Foundation stone, to the far right on the above photograph, the synagogue was built between 1885 and 1935.
