About us

Hoop Lane Cemetery opened in 1897 when the first burials took place. The Cemetery is managed by the Joint Burial Committee (JBC) on behalf of the Spanish & Portuguese Jews Synagogue (Sephardi) and the West London Synagogue (Reform). The Joint Burial Committee comprises of members from both the synagogues and is responsible for the general running and maintenance of the cemetery grounds.

What to do in the event of a Bereavement

Burial and other services are available every day except on Shabbat, Jewish festivals and Christmas Day. Those Jewish festivals that the cemetery is closed are both days of Rosh Hashanah, Yom Kippur, the first two days of Succot, Shemini Atzeret, Simchat Torah, the first two and last two days of Pesach, and both days of Shavuot.

Burial arrangements are made through members’ respective synagogues and contact should therefore be made directly with the communities below. If the deceased is a non-member, burial can still be arranged by the two owning communities. Please note that any questions about burial fees and other charges should be made to the individual communities. Burial plots cannot be purchased through the cemetery.

Gratuities and Donations

The Joint Burial Committee (JBC) and its staff are committed to offering members a very professional service and there is a strict ‘no gratuities’ policy. People who would like to donate any monies can do so through the charity boxes found near the cemetery offices and the prayer hall. In December each year, the JBC distributes the proceeds to external charities.
