"The first synagogue of which there is any record was in The Froggery in 1780. But there was a Jewish cemetery in the same neighborhood in 1730." [Jewish Year Book, 2005.] "...since which time three subsequent cemeteries have been consecrated - one in Granville street, near the Canal, another between Bath and Islington rows, in a thoroughfare which has consequently come to be known as Betholom row, and the present cemetery at Witton, which was consecrated on February 14th, 1871." [Jewish Year Book, 1910.]
