Restoration Projects: Make such a difference!
Who, in the Jewish establishment, is responsible for the Bancroft Road (Maiden Lane) Cemetery?
The argument has raged for over 100 years.
While that once historic burial ground has been reduced to a weed-covered desert and is now beyond restoration,
enthusiastic local activists have not only done, literally, ground-breaking work to restore the historic Deane Road Cemetery in Liverpool but have also mounted a campaign for Heritage funds which has resulted in a development grant of £13,800.
The wonderful work being done at Deane Road is described in photos here and the news of the development grant here on Louise Baldock's blog
