Sinai Synagogue Cemetery (Leeds)


Sinai Synagogue was founded in 1944. For some time the community met in a variety of halls and front rooms of private houses in the Chapeltown area of Leeds, eventually moving proudly to its purpose-built modern synagogue on Roman Avenue, Roundhay, in 1960. As the membership grew, this building was extended in the mid 1980's and it now has a function hall, a library and classrooms as well as the main synagogue.

In the early 1960's a plot of land for a cemetery was made available for the Sinai (Reform) congregation at the Harehills Cemetery, Leeds which is managed by Leeds City Council and this remains in use to this day.

The "virtual" cemetery provided here contains details of 336 burials, together with digital photographs of 324 headstones, and has been assembled from the photographs of the headstones as well as some additional information extracted from the few available extant records. An aerial photograph of the cemetery is provided here and a plan of the layout is provided here. The plot numbers used in this database are as assigned in the plan; the row identifiers have been assigned to aid in the location of burials.

Details of all burials in the Sinai Section of the Harehills Cemetery are provided in this database, together with images of all legible and partially legible headstones. It covers all burials and consecrations up to 30 June 2013.

Information for any individual may be displayed by first selecting the appropriate surname letters from the list below and then selecting the required name from its corresponding drop-down list. Navigation to the next or previous burial plot in the Section/Row is achieved by clicking the appropriate link on the individual burial page.
