A lack of Hebrew on gravestones in London #general

Alan Karbritz <AlanK@...>
 

My great grandfather's stone in Marlow Road cemetery East Ham East
London (an orthodox cemetery) does not have his hebrew name. I
thought this might have been because some stones in this cemetery were
destroyed by enemy action during the war but I was told this was not
the case.

I needed to know the hebrew name and contacted the United Synagogue
who were able to give me the details very quickly.

When I have looked round this particular cemetery I have noticed a
number of stones without hebrew names but the vast majority do have
Hebrew names on them.

Dear Sheila,
Edmonton has two Jeiwsh cemeteries - a United and a Federation.
There has been a lot of mindless vandalism at the Federation site recently
(kids, rather than racists we believe) - but a recent visit there proved
very distressing.

I am not sure what point you were making in your reply, but having been to
both cemeteries - as well as others including Waltham Abbey, Bushey,
Cheshunt & Edgwarebury Lane I can confirm that stones are nearly always in
Hebrew & English.

In fact I have only ever seen one stone that was totally in English (my
ggrandmother) - at the Willesden Liberal Cemetery. Another ggrandfather is
buried in Carterhatch Lane, Enfield - and his stone is totally in Hebrew..

Regards,
Daniel Gleek

I have photo of my Grandfathers stone, which is in Edmonton, set in 1945.
It is of a very utilitarian style, with basic wording, but there is still
Hebrew there. It is possible that during the two world wars there was a
dearth of people to engrave the stones much past the English. But, having
grown up in the UK, and still having strong ties there, I can tell you
that things change very slowly in the mainstream of Judaism, outside of
the more liberal factions. I would hazard a guess that most practices of
the United Synagogue, which has the majority of members,is 20 years
behind that of the Conservative movement in the US, at least as far as
egalitarianism and rituals are concerned. I don't think that there would
have been a trend towards no Hebrew, unless it was among the more
assimilated Jews. It would be interesting to compare notes on different
areas - for example the cemeteries in Edmonton, North London and the
ones in East London,as opposed to those in NW London, in the newer and
more affluent suburbs.

My G/Grandfather is buried at Edmonton, I have yet to
get to London to see his grave but having spoken in
depth on the phone I was given what was written on the
head stone and this doesn't seem to include any
hebrew. He was buried in 1945.

father's names

Itzik Tabac / Tabak died 21/12/61

Henry Tabac Tabak

These were all brothers

A clarification here....

Jeffrey is not referring to COPIES of records ordered >from the Polish

His reference is to EXTRACTS of records ordered at Polish Consulates
or Embassies. As I recall, the rate of $35 is the one used by the
Polish Consulate in New York and may be similar at other Consulates
in the U.S. Researchers should be aware that it is often worthwhile to
request such EXTRACTS directly >from Civil Records Offices who may
send it directly without charge or may send it via the Consulate route
with a cost similar to the one mentioned by Jeffrey.

For further information on ordering directly >from the Civil Records
Offices, consult Warren Blatt's PolandV Infofile on JewishGen.

Warsaw Cemetery Records #poland

I also sent money for both extracts and photographs of 4 tombstones. About a
week ago, I did received the photographs - which are great - efforts were
made to highlight what is engraved on the tombstones - but I haven't
received the extracts - so I sent them a fax yesterday thanking them for the
photographs and telling them that I had not yet received the extracts - that
I did want and had paid for. I'll see what happens.

Dear Ronald,

the way I understand "geshtalt" is a figure, a personality. I checked
this with my friend who is a Yiddish teacher and Yiddish radio announcer.
hope this will help.
