Glasgow Hebrew Burial Society Database #unitedkingdom


Webmaster JCR-UK
 

I am pleased to announce that following discussions with Derek Tobias,
the webmaster of the Glasgow Hebrew Burial Society (GHBS), the
Database of GHBS
(http://glasgowhebrewburialsociety.org/cemeteries.htm) is now
affiliated to JCR-UK. This database of burials in three of Glasgow's
Orthodox Jewish cemeteries contains records, including photographs of
all extant headstones as well as GPS coordinates for the individual
graves (still a work in progress as regards the two smaller
cemeteries), in the Glenduffhill Jewish Cemetery (approximately 7,600
burials >from 1934 to date); the Jewish Section of Riddrie Cemetery
(approximately 740 burials >from 1909 to 2003); and the Jewish Section
of Sandymount Cemetery (approximately 2,300 burials >from 1905 to
1993).

JCR-UK looks forward to this new relationship with the Glasgow Hebrew
Burial Society and is extremely grateful to Derek Tobias and all
others who have worked on the database.

For details of other recent significant additions to JCR-UK, see the
