DELHI STREET JEWISH CEMETERY

DESCRIPTION + /

A Jewish cemetery is situated on the northern side of Hedon Road, with access via entrances on Delhi Street. The Cemetery is rectangular in plan, approximately 95m long and 50m wide with a red brick boundary wall. The older, southern part of the site was established by the Hull Hebrew Congregation in 1858 and originally had a Bet Taharah that has since been demolished. The northern section was created by the Hull Western Synagogue in 1903 and the site was extended and an Ohel built in 1921. The Ohel has also been destroyed, seemingly after significant vandalism. The site contains many Matzevah headstones, predominantly on an east to west axis.
