Braid Place burial ground reduced

The first Jewish burial ground in Scotland was located at Braid Place, now Sciennes House Place. Twenty-nine burials took place between 1790-1867. David Daiches records in “The Jew in Scotland” that Glasgow Jews brought their dead to Braid Place for burial until they acquired a burial place of their own. When the cemetery became full land was acquired in Echo Bank Cemetery, now Newington Cemetery. Click on the icon lower right to explore at full resolution.
