Novo Cemetery

The Novo Cemetery provided equality in death to the community of Sephardic Jews, who first migrated to England in the 1490s, following their expulsion from Spain and Portugal.   More followed during the Commonwealth and the cemetery was established in 1733.   It is strangely enclosed by Queen Mary and, like the Tower Hamlets Cemetery, is covered in bluebells:-
