Cemetery is on outskirts of the village, and serves the Jewish communities of Kitzingen and Mainstockheim. It is somewhat difficult to find. A small lane through the surrounding vineyards leads up to it. It is thought to be over 500 years old. All dead buried here, from 1822 onwards until 1875, were recorded in the "Matrikel" book of the Jewish community of Roedelsee, kept by the Catholic rectory of the village. The gates of the cemetery are locked and the key is kept by the mayor. In reasonable condition, although rather overgrown.
