The Jewish cemetery was founded in 1780 and the Dissenters in 1808 and together they were in active use for just over 100 years and contain over 700 burials, many unmarked. They give us a glimpse into Falmouth’s long multi-cultural history, and display Cornwall’s inter-connected place in Georgian and Victorian Europe, offering an insight into Cornwall’s wide reaching trade links and the importance of Falmouth as an international packet boat port in the 19th century.
