Our next visit is on Wednesday 10th August when we will be touring the Willesden Jewish Cemetery. This has been a prestigious burial ground for London’s Jewish community since 1873. Today it is the only Jewish cemetery registered as a Park or Garden of Special Historic Interest. Our guide will cover the history of the cemetery, the significant monuments and some of the fascinating residents, including scientist Rosalind Franklin, Tesco founder Jack Cohen and 23 members of the Rothschild family. The tour starts at 10.45am and lasts 75 minutes. Afterwards we can have a look inside the buildings, including the new ‘House of Life’ visitor experience. The cemetery is about 10 minutes’ walk from Dollis Hill Station and we can travel together from Wembley Park Station. The cost is £8 each. If you are interested please contact Louise Bennett.
