The last known Jewish burial was in 1942. The isolated flat, suburban cemetery location has no sign or marker. Reach by country lane, access is open to all via a continuous masonry wall and locking gate. The approximate size of cemetery before W.W.II was 20x40 meters and now 20x30 meters. 20 to 100 marble, granite and sandstone 19th-20th century tombstones, most in original location, are flat shaped tombstones or finely smoothed and inscribed stones with Hebrew, German and Hungarian inscriptions. There is a pre-burial house. The present property owner is unknown. The property is Jewish cemetery only. Adjacent properties are commercial or industrial and agricultural. The boundary is smaller now than 1939. Private visitors visit frequently. No maintenance was done but now, there is regular caretaker. Moderate threat: vandalism.
