Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded in 1898, and we understand it is still open.

Ridgeway Park Jewish Cemetery was established in the 1890s, with the first burial taking place in 1898. In 1924 27 tombstones from an earlier cemetery, Great Gardens, Rose Street, were removed here. For details of burials, "together with images of all legible and partially legible tombstones as well as most of the 20th century Burial Certificates", please see the JewishGen website.

The Cemetery is also recorded on the Cemetery Scribes website, where the cemetery in Great Gardens is referred to as "Brook Court", and described as being in the private garden of Lazarus Jacobs, as indeed is described in the entry for Great Garden Burial Ground elsewhere in this database.
