BROAD GREEN CEMETERY APPEAL
A Commonwealth War Graves Cemetery - Liverpool Old Hebrew Congregation
It has been my privilege as chairman of the Burial Board to ensure the viability and to manage the many aspects of running the cemetery. Apart from the obvious, burials, maintenance is paramount.
Your support will ensure the preservation of the buildings and grounds of the congregation’s cemetery at Broad Green Liverpool.
Recently, very necessary major repairs and refurbishment were carried out to the Ohel (prayer house), the ritual washing facility and other out-buildings.
The maintenance of the burial ground itself is of prime importance, as many men and woman who made major contributions to the life and success of our great city are buried there, including some of the very earliest (1750) settlers.
Let us not forget the children, lives hardly begun, laid to rest in the children’s area, or the men of the congregation who made the ultimate sacrifice in two World Wars, honoured in our Memorial Garden.
The present and the future - a place to visit, to contemplate, to inform and educate?
We have a groundsman and a dedicated number of volunteers who help keep the cemetery in a good order, funds as I’m sure you will appreciate are, as often is the case, short, hence this appeal.
Many of you I will know, others by your family name, familiar to me, and I’m reminded of by the headstones on my regular visits to the cemetery.
I will look forward to your generous support.
With my best wishes,
Chairman Burial Board.
