Re: Were there markings on Jewish headstones in the United Kingdom that identify who the stonecutters were? #unitedkingdom

To all,
I have been trying to learn more about Jewish stonemasons, to understand how they gained their skills and expertise.  Also, I want to know what kind of religious knowledge they might have needed, to ensure that inscriptions were appropriate.  I still haven't found enough information.

However, this website has some interesting observations as well as including names of some "monumental stonemasons: that you might find useful for London at least:
