The Manchester "Old" Hebrew Congregation Cemetery
The Manchester "Old" Hebrew Congregation Cemetery
This cemetery is the oldest Jewish institution in Greater Manchester. It is located in Brindleheath, Salford and occupies an area about 3 metres by 5 metres in size. It was leased from a local silk dyer for a peppercorn rent in 1794 and was in use until a new cemetery was opened in nearby Prestwich in 1840. This is a view to the northeast, looking across the Irwell valley beyond the cemetery. Adjacent to the Hebrew cemetery lies Brindleheath Cemetery, formerly the site and burial ground of the original St Thomas's church (replaced in 1831 by a bigger church built nearby)
