The plot was acquired from the adjoining St Bartholomew's Hospital in the early 1780s and pre-dates the synagogue (which is situated on a lower level than the cemetery, down a steep bank). It is the only Jewish cemetery in the UK to be attached to a synagogue. Source: David Shulman, Webmaster JCR-UK [December 2016]
