Visit Our Orthodox Jewish Cemeteries
- date: 09-03-2014
Alan Tobias and Lee White have completed a massive project of photographing and cataloguing all the grave stones across our cemeteries.
There are now photographic records for UHC, BHH, Hill Top and New Farnley cemeteries on the JCR-UK web-site - click on the links to see it for yourself!
The link for the JCR-UK Leeds homepage is: www.jewishgen.org/jcr-uk/Leeds.htm
Click on the links to view each cemetery are:
BHH (Street Lane Gardens)
UHC (Shadwell Lane)
Well done to everyone involved including significant contributions by Malcolm Sender and previous work by the late Murray Freedman
The cemetery data for both the UHC and BHH cemeteries were extensively tested before they were offered for upload to JCR-UK. However, it has come to light that, during the upload of data to JCR-UK, a number of random images and html files became corrupted (approximately 5-10% of the total). We are aware that a number of users have found some images and records are not being displayed correctly, or are not being displayed at all.
In order to resolve this, we are having to check the status of each individual file in both the UHC (approx. 13,000 files) and BHH (approx. 5,000 files) and upload new versions of those files which have been corrupted. This will take a little time to complete and so we ask users to please bear with us while we work through this exercise.
