New UK Cemeteries Databases #unitedkingdom

David Shulman

A number of new burial databases have recently been added to JCR-UK.

I. Sunderland Cemetery
The Sunderland (Bishopwearmouth) Jewish Cemetery Database is now
available on JCR-UK at
The database, hosted by JCR-UK, contains records of nearly 1,500
burials, including over 1,260 photographs of headstones, with GPS
coordinates for each individual grave (accurate to about one metre)
together with a button which, when clicked, brings up a Google
satellite image of the cemetery showing the location of the grave.
Many thanks go to Alan Tobias, David Gordon, Malcolm Sender and Robert
da Costa, through whose efforts and support the database was created.

2, New Southgate Cemetery

Reform Synagogue (now merged into the Edgware & Hendon Reform

photographs of headstones) cover the period 1968 through 2016 and also
includes records of cremations recorded in the Synagogue's burial
