Edgwarebury Cemetery is well known throughout north west London. The cemetery was established in 1972 in its current location and is owned by four different communities with four very different traditions: S&P Sephardi Community, West London Synagogue, Liberal Judaism and our own community, Belsize Square Synagogue. The four communities share the facilities and also the expenses. It is the ultimate co-operative.
In December 2010, additional burial land was purchased for Belsize Square Synagogue. In 2014, a woodland burial area was created by West London Synagogue in partnership with landscape architects.
The prayer hall (Ohel) has seating for 100 people and additional space for standing, as well as a separate Kohanim room. There is a loop system in the prayer hall.
The Cemetery has an electric bus to transport visitors who may have difficulty in walking from the prayer hall onto the grounds. Wheelchairs are also available.
Edgwarebury Cemetery offers various services to all its communities:
- Maintenance care programme: Regular cleaning of memorial stones, as well as renovation in cases of severe weathering or subsidence. Maintenance plans are available for 1, 5 or 10 years
- Wall Plaques: A lasting way to commemorate a loved one whether or not buried in the cemetery
- Benches, Rose Trees, Pebble Bins and Granite Planters: A beautiful and dignified way to remember family and friends. Rose trees are maintained all year round by cemetery staff.
For further details of the above services, email the cemetery office on firstname.lastname@example.org
Visiting loved ones and friends at a cemetery can be a challenging and often traumatic experience. All Edgwarebury staff understand this and are there to help in every way possible. Any questions, comments or concerns can be directed to the cemetery office.
