Cemetery Description: "The land now known as Bathurst Lawn Memorial Park (known as the Woods Cemetery for many years) was purchased in the early 1930s by the Ivansker Mutual Benefit Society. Initially, forty-five synagogues and societies purchased segments of the cemetery from Ivansker. In later years, other organizations purchased parts of these segments. By 2007, there were fifty-five separate cemeteries making up Bathurst Lawn Memorial Park.

This section is located on the north side of the Jerusalem Road roadway. The section consists of ten rows: rows A through E are to the west side of the memorial gate (the row labels increase alphabetically from west to east); row E1 consists of the plots behind the memorial gate; and rows F through I are to the east side of the memorial gate. Plots are numbered sequentially from 1 (closest to Jerusalem Road) northwards. In some rows, plot 1A is in front of (closer to the road than) plot 1 (and in row C, plots 1D, 1C, and 1B are in front of plot 1A).

Headstone photographs are available for most burials through 2012/2013 (and are in the process of being added to JOWBR). Please contact to request a headstone photograph; please provide the decedent's name, cemetery section (and sub-section, if applicable), and row and grave numbers. Headstone photographs for more recent burials can also be requested at this address and are anticipated to be fulfilled during the summer months.
