Seeking Neville & Nathan Families

Willesden Jewish Cemetery (United Synagogue) want to trace descendants of the Neville family and Nathan family regarding the conservation work being carried out at the cemetery thanks to the National Heritage Lottery Fund.

Mr Henry Nathan who died aged 60 in 1927 and who is remembered with a distinctive marble monument

Urgent conservation work is needed to stabilise the memorial on this grave, an impressive columned structure surrounding a decorative memorial urn.

It has suffered from subsidence and is now leaning to one side. The conservation programme is part of a wider project to open the heritage of this significant site to more visitors, which is supported by a grant from the National Lottery Heritage Fund.
