Jewish Life Bereavement Cemeteries Edgwarebury Cemetery: This is owned jointly by the West London Synagogue of British Jews, the Spanish and Portuguese Jews’ Congregation, Liberal Judaism, and Belsize Square Synagogue, and is operated by Edgwarebury Joint Burial Board (EJBB). The day-to-day running of the cemetery is in the hands of the Cemetery Director and their team of staff. Edgwarebury Cemetery is open during British Summer Time from 8.30am-5.00pm, and from 8.30am-4.00pm after the last weekend in October, when the clocks go back. The cemetery does close, however, two hours prior to the commencement of a Jewish holiday and of the Sabbath on a Friday, so during winter the cemetery can shut as early as 1.15pm. Alongside standard cemetery provision, Edgwarebury has an area for woodland burial as well. Hoop Lane Jewish Cemetery: This is owned jointly by the West London Synagogue of British Jews and the Spanish and Portuguese Jews’ Congregation, and is operated by the Joint Burial Committee (JBC). This is a heritage site, hence the pathways are not always level, and the grounds themselves are uneven, so please take extra care, especially in the wet. Hoop Lane opening times are the same as those for Edgwarebury. For more information contact: Micky Nathanson, Ritual Services Co-ordinator, on 020 7535 0284.
