Jewish Cemetery, Queen's Road, Miles Platting
« on: Monday 22 November 21 02:15 GMT (UK) »
There was a Jewish Cemetery on Queen's Road, Miles Platting, Manchester, that I have been trying to track down. Can anybody clarify if this still exists and give me a precise location? Or if it has  been 'redeveloped', when this happened and were the stones recorded? Thanks

Roger

Collyhurst Cemetery, Knightley Walk, off Queen's Road, Miles Platting, M10:
1844 to 1872. Used by breakaway Manchester New Synagogue from 1844 until 1851, and thereafter used by the Great Synagogue mainly for infant burials until 1872. Subsequently falling into total disrepair, and has been vandalised.

Thanks for this very helpful reply and it (rather  sadly) helps to  solve the mystery. The cemetery stones are now gone, with just a marker to note its previous above ground existence. See here: https://www.genuki.org.uk/big/eng/LAN/Manchester/ConsterdineRdJewishBurialGround

It looks like any  stones were removed and to the best of my knowledge any  inscriptions on  them were unrecorded.   :(
