Streatham Jewish Cemetery also called Rowan Road Cemetery
We are currently adding photos from Streatham Jewish Cemetery.
These are being added in an ‘uncut’ format meaning that we have not, as yet, researched the individuals and added them to our main database.
As there has been a great deal of interest we took the unusual decision to list the photos with just names and year of death, where they can be read. Once we have added them all we will then add the full details and inscriptions to our main database.
For genealogy research these photos and information are a goldmine, often providing both the individuals’ original family name and the adopted, perhaps more English, name.
There are also many memorials to those lost during WW1, WW2 and civilian casualties.
See http://www.cemeteryscribes.com/showmap.php?cemeteryID=137&tree=Cemeteries Each are listed alphabetically and are not yet searchable other than by going through the pages.
The photos are from the collection taken by Mr L Saunders, jazz musician, who has called it a labour of love. Visiting the cemetery in all weathers and when his busy work schedule allowed. We are very grateful to Lynn for providing us with these photos and making them available to others via our website.
