Jewish Chronicle, 2 September 1881, page 5

Letter from man living in Stroud. Complains that the Cheltenham Congregation, which has a cemetery, claims the Gloucester one. Asks why they should claim it before Stroud or any other surrounding congregation. His wife has a stillborn child. Tried to get it buried in Bristol, unsuccessful. Tried to get it buried in Cheltenham, but had to pay heavily. Also, a week before Pesach a poor man lost a child. He had no money but Cheltenham asked for £3.10s and the writer got up a subscription.
He suggests that the Gloucester cemetery goes to the Jews of Stroud who were at present striving hard to get a small place of worship, especially as they could not possible buy ground for a cemetery.

Report of Shane’s contribution.
‘Many London Jews had never seen the outside the great City in which they lived, and therefore knew nothing of the struggles and heart-burnings of the small Provincial Jewish congregations.

They did not require them to be possessed of means, only that they were able and willing to work and able to speak English.
