Stoke-on-Trent & North Staffordshire
Hebrew Cemetery,

A34, Newcastle-under-Lyme


by Mr. Ian Down, 2004

The land in which the Hebrew cemetery is sited was given to the Hebrew community in the 1850ís by the then Duke of Sutherland but as in Hebrew law land that is used as a burial ground must be bought so the fee of £1 was charged for the land.

The first burial took place in the 1880ís about the same time as the first chapel was built, but by 1974 had to be demolished to make way for road widening of the A34. The present chapel was built in its place. The year is 2004 and the chapel is to be demolished and replaced with a Synagogue to replace the Synagogue in Hanley that is being closed down to make way for redevelopment.
