  • Old Jewish Cemetery: The old Jewish section located at the rear of the City Cemetery Belfast City Cemetery in west Belfast (used for Jewish burials between 1871 and c.1914 and occasionally after), is in a sad state of disrepair and a target for vandalism. It was listed (in 1999) as a "Jewish site at risk" by the Survey of the Jewish Built Heritage in the UK and Ireland and is in poor condition.
