The cemetery to which you refer was in the area between Burbage and Hoxton House I believe. I remember quite clearly lookin out of school staircase window one day to see the graves being removed. The graves were each enclosed by black sheets whilst work was being carried out. I think the cemetery was quite close to one of our playgrounds. I cannot be absolutely sure of the year but it must have been around early 60’s. Hope this is of some help to you.

As an ex pupil of Burbage, I believe that it did. Many others say that Burbage school was never in Hoxton Street. Any information would be very helpful.

Comment on Saving the past – Novo Sephardic Cemetery, Mile End by D Taylor http://cemeteryscribes.com/blog/saving-the-past-novo-sephardic-cemetery-mile-end-2/comment-page-1/#comment-41503 Tue, 02 Dec 2014 15:09:33 +0000 http://cemeteryscribes.com/blog/?p=535#comment-41503 I was on a tour of the East End recently with a guide and he took us to the Novo Cemetery which I knew nothing about. As we stood looking at the graves I was shocked to see a name I knew on one of the gravestones. I asked if I could go and take a photograph and this was agreed. When I got home and looked at my family tree I was shocked to see that the grave was the resting place of both my great grandparents who I never knew. This was a wonderful surprise and I have contacted the college and they have agreed that I can go and look around the site as well as another cemetery which is nearby. I only hope to find some more relatives which may not have been moved when the land was bought. What a same this was done and no records kept.
