Edgwarebury Cemetery

By a trust dated 25 July 1972 and made between Sir Alan Abraham Mocatta, Myer Alan Barry King-Hamilton, Geoffrey Davis, the London Sephardi Trust and the Trustees of The West London Synagogue of British Jews, trusts were declared in respect of Burial Grounds registered at HM Land Registry. The first burial took place on 14th December 1975 in the West London section.

In December 2010, additional burial land was purchased on the east side of Clay Lane. 1.8 acres was designated for Belsize Square Synagogue while the remaining land was allocated equally between the three other owning communities. In 2014, a Woodland Burial area was created by West London Synagogue in partnership with landscape architects. This project is still in its infancy and it will take many years to develop this section as a fully-fledged woodland area.

There are four owning communities: the S&P Sephardi Community, West London Synagogue, Liberal Judaism and Belsize Square Synagogue. The Cemetery is managed by the Edgwarebury Joint Burial Board (EJBB).

Our prayer hall (Ohel) was refurbished in 2017 with a new floor and new, upholstered chairs. There is seating for 100 people and additional space for standing. We also have an electric bus with 10 seats to transport people who may have difficulty in walking from the prayer hall onto the grounds.
