Little Ilford is a district of Essex, in the metropolitan conurbation. It is close by Ilford (historically known as "Great Ilford")[1] from which it is divided by the River Roding, and by the A406 North Circular Road. The are connected by the A118 road.

Little Ilford and Great Ilford have a common etymology. The name is first recorded in the Domesday Book of 1086 as Ilefort and means ford over the Hyle; an old name for the River Roding that means "trickling stream".[1]
