UPDATE: The photographs are of gravestones in Plashet and maybe other Jewish cemeteries. Many of those listed were taken in the period 1904 to 1920 and at West Ham. Please contact Tony Jones whose email does not work [May 2009]. The data includes Tony's reference number (e.g. F010 for photo number), a digest of the visible English inscriptions, date of death, type of stone material, the probable location and the probable date of the original photograph being taken. He also has a picture of the Plashet Cemetery main gate along main aisle.

UPDATE: Hours are more severely restricted. This cemetery is closed (not disused) as they actually had a burial there only a couple of months ago. The only way to gain access to this cemetery is by appointment. They try to open it for a group of people at a time because they have to drive from Bushey to East Ham to open up the cemetery.

UPDATE: I have just published a book about Plashet Cemetery called Plashet - Gone, but Not Forgotten: 1896-1900. I contains biographical details of 177 people who were buried in the first five years of the cemeteries use. Lots of information about the ordinary Jewish community of London. Useful for genealogical and family history purposes. . Source: This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it [October 2013]
