A very small Jewish congregation existed until the 1960's, but is now defunct. For Community Information, see Inverness on JCR-UK.
Tomnahurich New Cemetery, Jewish Section,: Glenurquhart Road, Inverness IV3.
"The Jewish community in Inverness have just completed an arrangement with the Town Council, by which they have acquired a piece of ground to be utilised as a cemetery. The ground is in the town cemetery. The need of a Jewish cemetery has been felt for a number of years, as former interments always took place in Glasgow over two hundred miles distant. A recent death - that of a young lad of fourteen years who had only just arrived from his home in Russia - determined the congregation to take this step. His body was the first buried in the new ground." [Jewish Chronicle, 12 January 1906, page 45. Source: Harold Pollins]
There are about 23 graves dating from 1906 until 1997, the records of 20 of which are searchable through the JOWBR Database on JewishGen.
Scottish Jewish Cemeteries website (http://www.scottishjewishcemeteries.org) includes a searchable database in respect of "over 20 burials" at this cemetery. [September 2016]
