UPDATE – Green Lane Cemetery Burials — 16 Comments

  1. I believe that my 2 x great grandfather Morris Jacubs must have been buried here but he does not appear on the list. He was a tailor from Poland who lived and ran a business on Banks Road. The property was sometimes known as London House. He died in 1922. If anyone has any information, I’d love to hear from you.

  2. My grandparents whose names were Simon or Shimone Hecht married my
    Grandma Katie Claire Taylor daughter of Anne Taylor.
    They got married in the early 1900s and had my mother
    Golda Hecht who was born December 30, 1925. I want to know
    If my grandparents got married in this Temple.

    • I would suggest you use Freebmd to find the GRO index details for the marriage and then order a copy of the civil marriage record which will show where they married.

  3. My great grandfather, the Rev (Abraham) Adolph Rutkowski, was minister at the Hope Place Synagogue, Hope Street, Liverpool, between 1885 and 1910. He is apparently buried in this cemetery together with is (second?) wife Rosa. he died in May 1910. He arrived in Liverpool from Konitz in Western Pomeranis in 1885. Information on him and his family is quite scanty.

    • Reverend Rutkowski was almost certainly one of the victims of the expulsion of Polish Jews from Prussia, as ordered in 1885 by Otto von Bismarck, the Minister-President of Prussia. Many such Jews preferred to emigrate westwards rather than return to Russian Poland. At least three Polish-Jewish chazanim came to Britain.

      • Is it possible to find further information on the Rev Abraham Rutkowski and in particular why he left Konitz with his family to take up this post in Liverpool?

    • Dear Beatriz

      Thanks for your message. You can contact me on xxxx. My home phone number is xxxxx. I live in Sutton, South London and I got to know your relation Esme Berman quite well in the last years of her life in Liverpool.

      • Esme Berman was my mother. It was lovely to see her name and that she is remembered.

        I now live in Warrington, but have not lived in Liverpool for many years (actually decades)

  5. Several members of my family may be buried in Green Lane that are not in your Green Lanes list and do not appear to be elsewhere in Liverpool Jewish cemeteries. They are my great aunt Leah Goldblat nee Servian, also known as Leah Max, died 1894 aged 26 in Mold, North Wales (daughter of Joseph and Ada Servian buried in Rice Lane); Leah’s husband’s previous wife Fanny Goldblat nee Unger, died in childbirth aged 17 in 1884 with her baby Rebecca; and my great grand aunt Hannah or Annie Silverman nee Sanders (Silverman name changed from Servian in 1879) who died in 1895. Would welcome any info on their last resting places.

    • Hi Jill My family is the Cohen family and Fanny ungers mother was Sophia Cohen. I have dna matches with the unger family through sophia. My gran and fanny looked very similar. I believe it was Rebecca who died at 16. Fanny lived until 1935 she married Mordicia and then Max Goldblatt she lived in America.

  6. Hi,
    Was looking at information regardin Leah Lipkin (nee Hesselberg), and saw the name Liprin. This is definately not the correct surname. Leah was my great grandmother, married to Robert Lipkin. Date of death was March 4th, 1916
    Please update accordingly and acknowledge

    • Hi Kathryn,
      Thanks for your comments. However, as both spellings already appear in the table we do not feel a change is needed. The original list was provided to us, we understand it was taken from readings of the tombstones visible at the time it was created. Additional notes and entries have been added as detailed in the articles on this site.

  7. From my research I believe that Green Lane is the cemetery for the Hope Place Synagogue. See http://www.iajgsjewishcemeteryproject.org/england/liverpool.html

    A copy of the results from the 1979 survey is held by Liverpool Records Office and I looked at these a few years ago to see what the inscription on my great grandfather’s stone said. I also photographed the list and then typed it out so that it is searchable. From that I can tell you (if you didn’t already know!) that Henry Davis is in plot V13.

    If you have information on Henry’s inscription you might consider sending them to http://www.cemeteryscribes.com/showmap.php?cemeteryID=135&tree=Cemeteries

  8. Is this the cemetery used by Hope Place Syn? I think Henry Davis is b 1861, d 1870, child of Louis Davis and Annie Davis. I recall inscriptions were in the possession of J Wolfman, Liverpool in 1980’s. I have Henry’s inscription in notes somewhere.
