The Jewish Cemetery in Colchester
Colchester now has a Jewish cemetery. This allows CDJC to provide funeral services for Jews of all shades of observance.
While the cemetery does not belong to us, anyone approaching the Cemetery Office (telephone 01206 282950) wanting an Orthodox burial will be referred to us
to ensure that they are halachically Jewish and therefore entitled to an Orthodox burial. If they do not want an Orthodox service
they are entitled to a non-Orthodox funeral without reference to us. However, we are happy to conduct such services.
For burials contact
, telephone 01206 762213.
Here is a picture of the Jewish Cemetery portion of the beautiful Colchester Cemetery. It was taken by an amateur (David), so better will come soon.
Note the excellent hand washing facility that the cemetery staff have built for us. The Orthodox section is the far part, with one grave and stone in it. The Liberal section is the close part, just before a burial. There is clear dividing path.
