Why the decline of British Jewish population from 1945 onwards?

I was looking up British Jews on wikipedia, and I was really surprised to learn that from 1945 to 2001 the number of British Jews almost halved. From 450,000 Jews the number falls to 266,000 in 2001 (with 330,000 in 1980).

Can anyone give me an explanation for the decline? I assume that some of the decline after 1945 was to immigrate to Israel after 1948, but I would be surprised if that was the explanation for the entire decline.
