I enquired about Cecil KRAVITZ a few weeks back, searching for details of
a shul he might have belonged to, along with his parents Solomon and
Esther. My thanks to those who responded but I still have not had any
success. I have now obtained a copy of his birth certificate and perhaps
the details might yield more success in locating their shul?
Cecil was born on April 14th 1916 and the address is shown as 166 Cornwall
Road, London SE. Cornwall Road is a few yards >from Waterloo Station, south
of the Thames, although his birth was registered at Kensington Central,
north of the Thames. Both parents were tailors and had previousl lived in
Harrogate, Yorkshire. Her maiden name was SIRAGHER. After this date there
is no trace of any of them in births, marriages, death, deed poll name
changes or Ellis Island records.
I also understand that there was a tailors called Kravitz in Bond Street
in the west end of London until about 1950. Does anybody out there have
May you all fast well and enjoy a happy, healthy and prosperous new year.
I will be in Israel for Succot.
