  • Townhill -  When I visited  in 2007 the cemetery was sadly overgrown,  the Shatz memorial leaning over  considerably & flaking; the cost of replacing it seems impracticable.  In 2009 Michael Howard paid for some restoration. The current Chairman of the Congregation has informed me: "Maintenance work continues to be carried out on the cemetery and a few years ago  new inside gates were  erected."  The Cemetery Scribes site states "The 99 year lease for the old burial ground (part of Town Hill) was dated 28 Nov 1768. It was enlarged in 1878 but by 1965 it was practically full."  Source: Bryan Diamond, August 2013
