    Year of Registration: 1893
    Quarter of Registration: Apr-May-Jun
    Age at death: 24

    Sorry, I can’t give you more, I am related to the NEURICKS but I don’t know who this Rachel is.

  2. Deaths Mar 1852 AUB Samuel Meyer Liverpool 8b 196

    Name: Samuel M Aub
    Port of Arrival: Dover, England [from Belge]
    Arrival Date: 11 Jun 1848
    Country of Origin/Native of: Germany Merchant

    no trace on 1851 Census

  3. Deaths Jun 1857 Kisch Julia Liverpool 8b 165
    There was a Julia Kisch living with her brother, Simon, on 1851 census in Marylebone; 1841 daughter of Abraham & Isabella Kisch. Not clear but it looks was if Abraham was Secretary and Reader of Western Synagogue in Westminster St James
    Could the illegible name be Emrik or Gompers. It appears as if her death was registered under her maiden name.
    Marriages Mar 1852 (>99%)
    Collins Julia St James Westminster 1a 473
    [Emrik Gompers Eliazer St James Westminster 1a 473]
    [Kisch Julia St James Westminster 1a 473]
    Myers Lionel Alman St James Westminster 1a 473

    • Emrik Gompertz/Emrik Gompers
      Could this be something to do with the Gompertz of Emmerich family? At this minute I am pushed for time but I have a feeling that in researching Benjamin and Lewis (sons from I suspected the second family of Solomon Gompertz) I noticed an (elder?) sister, Julia. (Your blog is fantastic, esp. the Marques will)

      • Thanks Hannah for your kind comments, we haven’t had time yet to research these families but you may well be right.

    Deaths Sep 1897 De Jongh Louis 69 W. Derby 8b 489
    He might have been Louis A on 1891 Census

    • These de Frece family members are all related to Henry de Frece and his brothers, who were theatrical entrepreneurs in Liverpool, the de Frece Circuit of 20 music halls in London etc, father of Sir Walter and comedian Laurie and their showbiz wives.I think Eva de Jongh was also from that family. Esther de Frece was married to one of the brothers and they always spelled their name wrong (Frace, de Frace, Fries etc). The London de Fries chandalier makers were, I think, the same family with a variant spelling. All Dutch origin and mainly stationers, printers.

    THIS FITS FOR HENRIETTA, W/O ABRAHAM

    • hi, my friend Bill Heilbronn is researching his family. he was born in Glasgow but family from Liverpool…..Germany. that same family you are researching is his so you will be connected. I can send you on his address in Canada if you would like it. do you have any old photos?
      Yours kindly
      lorraine

      • My Mum was Marie Heilbron (died 2004, Sheffield) and her parents were George and Rachel Heilbron who lived at Ferndale Road, Liverpool.

        I am trying to put together a family tree but can’t find out much. Perhaps your friend Bill has some information?

        Many thanks

        Gillian Sykes

        • Hi, I think Bills

          father was a Theodore Heilbronn and mother Helen Black. Theodore was born in Liverpool and moved to Glasgow. Rest of the family remained in Liverpool.
          Theodores father was a Moses William and mother Sarah. They had quite a big family.

    • Do you have much on this family. This is the same family my friend is looking for. His Father Theodore Heilbron is a son of Moses- son of Abraham and Henrietta Heilbron..Love to know more or get copies of any old photos….

  8. Sprinza Gorfunkle (nee Ellenbogen) died 22 Apr 1925. She was the wife of Lazar Yankel (Lazarus Jacob) who died in 1928 (He appears in some censuses as Hargreaves G Gorfunkle).
    Peshke Gorfunkle was Lazar’s mother – I don’t know when she died.
    Louis was the son of Lazar – he was born in 1890.
    David Ellenbogen was the father of Sprinze – he died in 1898 (Sep, W Derby 8b 255). Rachel was his wife. Sellick (Selig) was their son.
    I have full deatils of all this family, if anyone is interested.

        • Sarah Mandell was the oldest child of Sellick and Matilda Ellenbogen—she being my aunt———-but died 11 years before my birth in 1926. Her Grand daughter–Esme Gordon (Curlander) lives in Southport, England.

    • Simon, I was very pleased to come across this information as Laarus Gorfunkle was my great grandfather. My mother was Naomi Gorfunkle daughter of Wolfe who was the son of Lazarus. I have been investigating the family for a while now and would be very interested to know what other information you have.

      kind regards

      Russell

    • Sellick Ellenbogen was my Maternal Grandfather—-he married my grandmother (Mathilda Haschman) in 1869 when he was 21 years of age and my grandmother was just 15—–he made his living as a Glazer in Everton (Priory Mount).
      I believe they had a total of 12 children my mother being the youngest (Gertrude)

      It is my understanding that Sellick and his younger brother Issac arrived as immigrants to England together.

      If you have anything else to add to this I would certainly appreciate having it!!

    • Simon,
      I would be interested in hearing if you – or any other Ellenbogen researcher, know what relationship Simon & Rachel had with Marks and Sarah Ellenbogen (born ~1834 and ~1844) – also from Rajgrod in Poland / Russia. Marks is equivalent to Mordechai and Markus. They also emigrated to Liverpool – later much of that family moved out to Rhodesia.

  28. Frederika Marcus was born 1823 in Thorn, Prussia. She was married to David Levi Marcus, in Prussia. They came to Liverpool in 1851 with a baby, Johanna. 2 more children were born to them in Liverpool, Martha in 1860 and Isaac in 1863. David was a Merchant. They lived at 27 Warburton Street, and their daughter Johanna married in Hope Place Synagogue.

  29. I am interested in the Lowis Warner grave – no other info? Richard Warner married Lizzie Somers in Liverpool, and his first wife Elizabeth Benjamin had died perhaps a couple of years earlier, apparently childless after several years of marriage. The de Frece cousins of Lizzie Somers are in this graveyard. Is this definitely a Jewish grave?

  30. My wife Laura is the grandaughter of Laura Marcus nee Stern who is twice referred to above.She is the daughter of Victor Marcus of Belfast who was born in 1900 and has a birth mug giving the date for her Grandmothers birth as 6th March 1868.If anyone has more information about the family past or present I would be interested to hear.Esther Stern nee Woolf must be the my wife’s Great Grandmother.

  31. Does anyone knoww of a finestone family who had a business called Days in kempston st liverpoo,, mum worked there after the war
    Is now 91 living in ca ada and wonders what happend to them

  32. AARON COHEN Died 08/10/1910. Born Dobzyrn, Brzeg County Opole Voivodeship Poland June 15 1838. Husband of Sophia, Father of Jeanette Lazarus, Maurice Cohen, Isaac Cohen, William Cohen, Fannie Price, Rebecca Joseph, Emily Bergman, Esther Bergman, Abraham Cohen. Brother of Wolf Cohen.
    Lived at 144 Great Howard Street and 50 Park Lane, Liverpool Merseyside.

  33. Adeline (Ada) Barnett nee Leon was my Great- Grandmother.
    According to the Schul records she died on 12th September 1915.
    Her husband was Frederick Barnett who was president of Hope Street Synagogue in 1896. She married him on 22nd April 1868

    I am interested in finding out where Frederick Barnett is buried. It could be in Salford Manchester but i rather think he would be near his wife in Liverpool.

  34. I’m looking for where my paternal grandfather may be buried died in about 1943’ish

    His official name was Hyman Isbovitch but possibly changed and used the name Hyman
    Harrison (as my surname)
    He was a member of the Shul in Vine St Liverpool as my late father was barmitzvah was there

    Looking forward to your repl
    Best wishes
    Harvey

    • I’m afraid we can only provide information on those we have added to CemeteryScribes website ie where we have photos of tombstones. You may want to try the relevant burial society for further information or BethDin.

  35. I had ancestors in Bootle from Russia their name was harris and they were tailors . My grandfather moved to glasgow Simon was his name . His father was Isaac , his wife Annie Severski. Does anyone know of this family . I have tried for years to find them .thank you .

  36. Isaac Fineberg was my Great Great Grandfather and from what I have found out he died in 1903. Harris Fineberg was his son who died in 1920. Both Isaac and Harris were involved in the Music Hall Business in Liverpool (The New Star Music Hall – now the Playhouse Theatre). Isaac had a daughter Isabella who married Solomon Cohen whose daughter, Priscilla was my Grandmother. Solomon and his father Jonas were also involved in the music hall business, namely the Constellation Music Hall, Whitechapel. I have yet to find out where Jonas and Solomon are buried.

    Thank you

  37. Also, Priscilla was Isaac Fineberg’s wife who died in 1865. I can only guess that Elias was Isaac’s brother – they were born just a year apart.

  38. I live in this area and had no idea this was a Jewish cemetery before I found this page. Let me tell you all now, it’s in a terrible state. I’m pretty tall so can see over the bricked up gate space. All the stones seem to have been removed and it looks like a soul hasn’t stepped foot in there for decades. It’s completely overgrown. Awful. It should restored like the nearby once similarly abandoned Jewish cemetery in Kensington has been.

    • Thank you for your comments.
      If you have any photos we would be happy to post them.
      Perhaps a local group will get together to tidy up.
      It is always difficult for communities to decide on how best to spend any available funds, whether to help the living or to tidy up cemeteries, it is not a choice I would like to have to make. There is also the argument that these burial grounds should be places of rest and undisturbed which in turn is a benefit to wildlife, flora and fauna.
