Bath Jewish Burial Ground
Heritage Open Day: Visit this beautiful, tranquil burial ground, the resting place of Bath’s Jewish community during the 19th and early 20th centuries. Experience the quiet peaceful atmosphere of the cemetery, and learn about the lives of the people buried here. The Jewish community in Bath leased the piece of land in Combe Down, Bath in 1812 from Henry Moore, a quarry-man. The first burial is dated 1812. A small adjoining strip of land was acquired in the mid 19th century, and the cemetery continued in use until the early 1920s (when the community became so small in number, it was no longer used). Just over 40 headstones or tombs are visible today, but we believe there are more burials on the site, where the headstones have been lost.
