Bancroft Road Jewish Cemetery – Restoration Update!
The good news keeps coming!
Today we received confirmation from Leonard Shear that the restoration work is definitely being undertaken by the United Synagogue Burial Society.
They will be levelling the ground, clearing all the rubbish, turfing the areas that need it, planting bushes and pruning the trees. All of this is ongoing and seasonal.
Then, once all this has been completed, the U.S. will collate the burials and photograph the tombstones.
As Leonard so aptly says “all of this work will take time but most importantly a start has been made”.
We will continue to keep our readers informed of the restoration work and its progress. While the photo here shows the current state of the cemetery we are so looking forward to being able to bring you the ‘before’ and ‘after’ shots!
