Information: The sole remaining portion of one of Britain's earliest post-Resettlement Jewish cemeteries, whose connection with the London Sephardi community goes back nearly three centuries.

  • Landscape interest: as the expression of distinctive Sephardi burial practices, and especially the avoidance of all upright monuments.
  • Rarity: one of only two exclusively Sephardic cemeteries in England.
  • Location and group value: part of a cluster of early Jewish burial grounds in the Mile End area, within the historic heartland of London Jewry.
