  • Jewish Cemetery "For many years the few Jews of Moncton had used the facilities of Saint John on their sad occasions, but by the end of the 1920s they decided to establish their own House of Life. However, as the occasions arose, the dead were still taken to Saint John. The reluctance to be the first ended in 1931 when Aaron Coleman expressed his wish to lie in Moncton. He enters the records as the first Jew to be buried in that city." (Lloyd A. Machum. A History of Moncton, Town and City, 1855-1965, Moncton, City of Moncton, 1965. p. 311, quoted in House of Life by David Rome.)
