"The cemetery, surrounded by compound walls on all four sides, lies in an open space across from St. Teresa's College and Convent and a newly constructed shopping mall. It is registered in the name of the Kadavumbagham Synagogue and the Thekkumbhagam Synagogue. Overgrowth of vines and weeds makes it almost impossible to locate graves, although mounded areas probably indicate tombstones and one is barely visible." [October 2000]

"Two years ago there was a similar attempt to destroy the old cemetery of Ernakulam which was only turned back by the Jewish Community with great effort. There is now a concerted effort by the Corporation of Cochin to acquire a portion of the new Cemetery in Ernakulam to allow construction of a road." photo. [October 2000]
