I took a wander to Kensington today because I have a passion for the new Polish Deli that opened up there a few weeks ago. I love Polish food....anyway...I went back today and also decided that I would go to the Lidl store that is there. I was glad I made that decision as the Jewish cemetery opposite was open. I've been trying to see inside there for yonks!

I had no idea David Lewis was buried in there, alongside his wife Bertha.

Needless to say I was so happy to have a phone cam on me.....

David Lewis. He founded the department store Lewis's in 1856 and Bon March in 1877




This is Baroness Miriam de Menasce 's grave. 1851-1890. The de Menasce family were very wealthy, they dominated the Jewish community in Egypt. After Joseph died of TB, Miriam returned to Liverpool but she dies in Paris aged just 39. This is why her this structure has Egyptian features.

While I was there, I asked about the one on Green Lane. To their knowledge, there are no plans to do anything to it. It's quite sad how it has just been left like it has.  Sad

I first came across that cemetery, by chance, a few years ago, as you could quite easily pass it by, but not knowing what it was, at the time! Since then, the cemetery has acquired a "Friends" organisation, of some type, and it looks a lot tidier, since I was there!



The entrance wall is now painted, whereas previously, it was natural stone, and quite grimy!

Barbie, don't know if you'ld be interested, but there is also another "forgotten" jewish cemetery, off Smithdown rd, in Arundel avenue! It's only open on a Sunday, 10 till 4 I think, and there's a pleasant garden where you can sit, and ruminate!
