CEMETERY:

  • Newport Jewish Burial Ground, Risca Road, Sowe Hill, Newport, NP20.

The cemetery was established in 1859, with the first burial being in 1861. There is an additional plot, adjacent to the original plot, which had been acquired in 1946.

Access: The cemetery is locked, although as the ohel is now used as a synagogue, it is opened on the Sabbath. Source: David Shulman, Webmaster JCR-UK [2006]
