Church History

This Cemetery or Burial Ground was founded after 1824, and we understand it is still open.

The land for the cemetery was purchased in 1824 by the Cheltenham Hebrew Congregation which was established in 1823. There is an account of the history on the Jewish presence in Cheltenham on the Cheltenham Synagogue website, and a further account of the history of this Burial Ground on the Cemetery Scribes website.
