When the kind person takes a photo for Daniela Torsh, could he or she please also take a photo of the nearby gravestone of my great-uncle, Mendel David SIGAL, at Tor 4, Group 21, Row 39, Grave 15.  He was born in Kozova in 1881, died in Vienna 1940.  The burial record lists his brother, my grandfather Israel Berl SIGAL, as the person authorized to dispose of the body, - although Israel was already confined in a Sammelhaus at Franz Josefs Kai.  Where could I find  records about the deceased who are buried at the cemetery, - at the synagogue? or IKG? or an archive?  Also, Mendel died at "1180, Spital der IKG" - do they have records?  Many thanks to any and all who can help.

Hi Selma.
I'm afraid a friend has already been to the cemetery to take the photo of Heinrich Neumann's grave. You'll have to ask again separately in this group.
The burial record should be at the IKG and if not then at the City Archives.
Good luck.
