Do you know whether the search facilty is supposed to cover all those buried there,
or merely those whose grave location is known?

A Study of the Jewish Population living in Britain in 1851 gives Berger,
'Jewish Victorian 1871-80' as source of statement that Lewis Phillips was buried in
West Ham Jewish cemetery in 1878
(http://www.jgsgb.org.uk/1851/1851.asp?SubjectID=20524) but he is not found by the
search.

If I could find somewhere (apart >from Berber) a reference to his burial as being
in a particular cemetery, I would feel safer looking for the cemetery in which his
unmarried daughter Clementina Phoebe Goldsmit(h), formerly Phoebe Phiillips, who
died in 1884, was buried.
