Willesden Jewish Cemetery


Basic Information

The Willesden United Synagogue Cemetery, usually known as Willesden Jewish Cemetery, is in Beaconsfield Road. It opened in 1873 on a 20-acre site.

There are in the cemetery 33 Commonwealth service war graves from World War I, six of whom form a small group by the Assembly Hall. In place of the more usual Cross of Sacrifice, a specially designed memorial to men and women of the Jewish faith who lost their lives in both wars stands opposite the Second World War plot. The memorial is in the form of an obelisk and was the first Jewish national war memorial to be erected in the United Kingdom.
