Green lane Jewish Cemetery

Memorial
Green lane Jewish Cemetery Green lane Tue Brook, Stoneycroft L13 7DT

Basic Information

The cemetery was opened in 1831 and in use until about 1921 as the cemetery of the Liverpool New Hebrew Congregation, which is now defunct. It has been sealed off since the 1990s and is now completely overgrown. The earliest headstone dates from 1842.

Founded by the breakaway Liverpool New Hebrew Congregation and inherited in turn by Hope Place (1857) and Greenbank Drive (1937) this cemetery has been 'left to nature' behind a high brick wall since the 1990s.

Greenbank closed in 2008 rendering the cemetery truly abandoned.

By contrast, Liverpool Old Hebrew Congregation's (Princes Road) cemetery at Deane Road (1836), with its fine Grade II Listed Greek Revival screen and gateway, has undergone a major restoration thanks to a HLF grant. Deane Road is the oldest extant Jewish cemetery in the city.
