Willesden Jewish Cemetery – additions to CemeteryScribes

In Jan 2010 Cemetery Scribes reported on the Knowles Collection and the new site http://histfam.familysearch.org/index.php which includes ‘The Knowles Collection – The Jews of the British Isles’. Todd’s collection now holds over 75,000 people from 149 independant sources.

Todd kindly gave us photos of tombstones at Willesden Jewish Cemetery and we are now delighted to announce that we have added over 230 of these photos to CemeteryScribes.com, thank you Todd!

You can browse the Willesden Cemetery photos here http://www.cemeteryscribes.com/showmap.php?cemeteryID=18&tree= or by searching the database by name.

Many of the individuals’ births and marriages can also be found on our sister site SynagogueScribes www.synagoguescribes.com

Whilst adding the information to CemeteryScribes we couldn’t resist spotlighting a few individuals in our blog:

Hildesheimer & Co
Willesden Cemetery; Art, Music and Literature

Of course this only touches the surface with regards to Willesden Cemetery and we hope to add more at some future date.  However, you will all be aware by now that, with the exception of War Graves, we have a cut-off date of 1928 for privacy reasons, which will exclude a large proportion of the remaining unrecorded stones.
