BISHOP AUCKLAND, County Durham: Print

For information on the Community (which existed from the mid-1930s to the early 1950s), see Bishop Auckland on JCR-UK.

Cemetery: There is a small Jewish section of the municipal cemetery, encircled with privet hedges enclosed by iron railings. It contains 11 graves (five double graves and a single grave), generally dating from 1952 (although one of those interred died in 1935) to 1976. Most of those interred appear to be members of the same family (Kosilevsky). Generally, burials of members of the local Jewish community took place in Darlington.
