Harrogate Stonefall Cemetery

OUR TRANQUIL AND SERENE Jewish cemetery is probably the most beautifully set of all the Jewish facilities in our region in semi-woodland to the south-east of Harrogate, close to Wetherby Road. The peaceful countryside location adjoins the non-Jewish cemetery.

Nearby is the Stonefall Military Cemetery, where over 1000 of the fallen from World War II are laid to rest.  Those buried at Stonefall include Sir Montague and Lady Sophia Burton - the Burton family have always been generous supporters of the community since its foundation. A "virtual" cemetery database provided here contains details of 179 burials in the Jewish Cemetery and six Jewish burials in the Military cemetery. It has been assembled from digital photographs of the headstones. This database covers all burials and consecrations up to 30 September 2014.
