Webmaster's Notes (↵ returns to main text)

  1. This congregation subsequently became known as the Manchester Great Synagogue. 

  2. This was a short-lived breakaway congregation from the main Manchester congregation and existed from 1843 until reunfication in 1851. 

  3. The congregation in Newcastle upon Tyne was known as the Temple Street Synagogue. 

  4. The hired hall was probably at 9 High Street, King's Lynn. 

  5. This was where the synagogue was situated from 1825 to 1857, when the congregation moved to Cheetham Hill Road. 

  6. The congregation's synagogue was variously shown as being being situated at Miller's Lane or Ainsworth Court, the latter being a former address of the main Manchester congregation. 

  7. The synagogue in Temple Street was in use from 1838 to 1878. 

  8. King's Lynn's Millfleet Jews' Burial Ground, Stonegate Street, dates from as early as 1811. 

  9. The reference to two cemeteries is probably to: (i) Pendleton Jews' Burial Ground, Brindle Heath Road,- "Manchester's first Jewish cemetery" in use from 1794, although its use ceased in about 1840; and (ii) Prestwich Village Jews' Burial Ground, Bury New Road , generally in use from 1841 to 1884.  

  10. The Collyhurst Cemetery, Miles Platting, was used by breakaway Manchester New Synagogue from 1844. 

  11. This refers to Newcastle's Thornton Street Cemetery, off Westgate Street, in use from about 1831 (or 1835) to 1851. 

  12. This refers to the Quakers Lane Jews' Burial Ground, St Crispin's Road, Norwish, opened in 1813 and in use until 1854. There was also an earlier Jewish cemetery. 

  13. This refers to Nottingham' North Sherwood Street Jews Burial Ground, in use from 1823 to 1869.
