A burial ground in Combe Down, the resting place of Bath’s Jewish community during the 19th and early 20th centuries, will be holding an open day on Sunday 2nd May.
The site, which was in use between 1812 and 1941, will be open to the public between 11am and 4pm.
The voluntary group that takes care of the cemetery has recently been looking into the lives of some of the people buried there.
The research includes the sad story of Eva Jablonsky, a French teacher, who was in Bath during the First Word War but jumped from an upper window in Laura Place after a detective asked her about her registration papers.
Another includes Hetty Samuel, who died in Bath in 1867 but whose body was later exhumed and taken, together with her tombstone, to the USA.
A printed guide and smartphone app will help visitors read the inscriptions and give information about the people buried at the site.
Admittance to the open day is free. A maximum of 15 people will be allowed to enter at any one time. Assistance dogs only are permitted.
Volunteers have said that wheelchair and buggy access is difficult as there are steps and some uneven ground.
The burial ground is located at 1 Greendown Lane, Combe Down, BA2 5DD.
