The Zoroastrian Trust Funds of Europe in the United Kingdom has been established for over one hundred and fifty five years.

Zoroastrians in the United Kingdom as it is the one hundred and fiftieth anniversary year of the establishment of the national faith association the Religious Funds of the Zarathushtrians of Europe, the fore-runner of the Zoroastrian Trust Funds of Europe of today. We go back in history to August 1861 when Seth Muncherji Hormasji Cama appealed to Dadabhai Naoroji and others to set up a religious fund to benefit Zoroastrians in Europe. Although the first recorded arrival of a Zoroastrian in the UK was in 1724, the number of Zoroastrians in the UK was always extremely small. It is estimated that in 1861 there were around 50 Zoroastrians and by the end of the Second World War, there were no more than 200. They were mainly traders spearheaded by the Cama, Tata and Wadia families and some other professionals. It is only in the last fifty years or so that our members dramatically increased with the arrival of Zoroastrians from India and Pakistan followed by those from East Africa, Aden and other British Colonies and later in 1979 from Iran.
