    Thanks to the hard work of Alan Tobias and Lee White, the cemetery database for the Sinai Reform Synagogue has now been added to the collection of cemetery records listed on the Leeds home page on JCR-UK http://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Leeds.htm.

    The specific link for this cemetery database is http://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Community/Leeds/cemeteries/Sinai%20Cemetery/Cemetery_menu.htm and it provides burial details and headstone photographs for approximately 350 burials at the Sinai Cemetery , Harehills from the 1950’s up to June 2014. This work was carried out  by Lee White and Alan Tobias.

    They have also recently added the records from the Doncaster Jewish Cemetery, Rose Hill  at http://www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Community/doncaster/Doncaster%20Cemetery/Cemetery_menu.htm. This database provides information for approximately 70 burials over the period 1930 to  2006. The work was carried out by Malcolm Sender, Nigel Grizzard, Ian & Linda Senior and Alan Tobias.

    Don't forget that there are also photographic records for UHC, BHH, Hill Top and New Farnley cemeteries on the JCR-UK web-site!
