    Question German Communities in London?

    Are there neighborhoods in London that are settled predominately by German-speakers or are these people dispersed throughout London?

    How many of the approximately 45,506 South African-born people in London are white?

    Not too sure, perhaps a Londoner can relate. It is quite likely that perhaps any large number of German-speakers counted by the census are either "temporary residents" such as businesspeople or students, or any others that have settled after such undertakings.

    Considering that South Africa is a paradise for Negroes these days, whilst life for White people, whether Afrikaner, or English-descended, is getting harsher by the day, I would keenly wager to say that you're likely talking about 97-98% at least.
    -In kalte Schatten versunken... /Germaniens Volk erstarrt / Gefroren von Lügen / In denen die Welt verharrt-
    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    (Heimdalls Wacht, In kalte Schatten versunken, stanzas 4-6)

    I'm going back 20+ years now but when I was in London I had the good fortune to live with a German landlady. She'd been in the capital since the 1950's and I asked her this same question but she told me there were no German communities that she knew of.

    Hmm, I don't know how reliable this information is:

    Other Germany clusters are in affluent west London areas – particularly Richmond, which has a dedicated German school offering a German curriculum and exam system.

    Yes, of course. London probably has communities from every place on earth.

    Thanks.
    I've found some sites regarding British-Germans.
    Wiltshire, Colchester, North Yorkshire and Aldershot, which are all home to significant army populations, had a combined German-born population of 12,000.The Office for National Statistics estimates that, in 2007, there were 266,000 German-born people living in the UK but only 89,000 German nationals.
    Other than in areas with army bases, German-born clusters are found in West London, particularly around Richmond, where there is a German school.

    Well the ancestors of the native English were the Saxons, Baravian beer house and oktoberfest coming to England that sounds fun to me.
