Lithuanians in the United Kingdom including individuals born in Lithuania who have migrated to the UK as well as their British-born descendants form a subgroup of Baltic people in the United Kingdom. The 2011 UK Census found that 97,083 Lithuanians were residing in the UK, a large rise from a population of less than 5,000 in 2001.
Significant numbers of Lithuanians (and other Baltic nations) have come to the UK after its EU accession alongside and Central Europeans (mostly Poles), however there have been historically notable Lithuanians communities in the UK since the early 20th century most notably in Glasgow and London. In Scotland, the first Lithuanians came during the latter part of the 19th century.
Changing Identities: Latvians, Lithuanians and Estonians in Great Britain (CreateSpace Publishing, 2013) is a book written by Dr. Emily Gilbert which presents the history of Lithuanians in Britain until the present day. Available on Amazon.
