Willesden Jewish Cemetery has been a prestigious burial ground for London’s Jewish community since 1873. Thanks to investment by the National Lottery, the United Synagogue is opening up the cemetery for the wider public to discover and explore.
Willesden Jewish Cemetery was created as an amenity for Victorian Jews of German and Dutch origin who settled in London. It has long been a prestigious place to be buried. The cemetery was opened in 1873 on former sheep grazing land that was bought by the United Synagogue, a union of five Jewish congregations in the City of London.
