 Halfway (Queenborough) Jewish Cemetery , Kent, 1. England, UK


Notes:
Halfway Jewish Cemetery: Opened in 1859. Possibly the smallest Jewish cemetery in England.

Extract from JTrails with the kind permission of, and copyright to Marcus Roberts:

The new cemetery was first used in 1859 and is a separate hedged section visible from the road at the Sheerness end of the cemetery. It was originally ran by a private company, the Isle of Sheppey cemetery Company to 1945, then the District Council.

Professor De Lange has recorded eleven stones in the new section. The majority are for the Jacobs family and some three for the Levy's. The latest he records is in 1899 for Esther Jacobs. The tombstones all imitate the general local styles seen elsewhere in the cemetery.

Headstone photos - COMPLETE

Please note, that we have included a second set of photos of each headstone taken in Jan 2007 which show that someone had placed a flower on each grave. The photos were taken a day or so after Holocaust Memorial Day and we wonder if this is the reason for the flowers? do you know more? if so we would love to hear from you.

General views of the cemetery can be found here
