Laws and Bye-Laws of the Burial Society of the United Synagogue, London 1902. Histories of Cemeteries by Philip Ornstein.

5a Burial_0002This is an original 1902 copy of the Laws and Bye-Laws of the Burial Society of the United Synagogue – the rules followed for traditional Jewish burials and for administration of the cemeteries.  It includes interesting histories of the Ashkenazi cemeteries of London that were in existence in 1902, written by the Secretary of the United Synagogue, Philip Ornstein.

Indeed, my copy includes his presentation letter and inscription.

This is a long post, but have patience – the descriptions of the cemeteries below are full of information.
