Old (Velho) Burial Ground, the original cemetery -
now in a bad state of repair and closed. This Jewish cemetery was based on land at Mile End bought in 1657 by resident crypto-Jews Antonio Fernandez Carvajal and Simon de Caceres  - it was a key step in the Jewish resettlement under Cromwell which was consolidated under Charles 2. Many people figuring in our story are buried here. 
  New (Nuovo) Burial Ground -
 surrounded by buildings of Queen Mary College, University of London. Many of the interred were (sadly) relocated to Brentwood, Essex.

 This photograph and the ones to either side were taken by John Bury in October 2011.
  The Nuovo cemetery contains many stories, and the grave above is of Sir Joseph Sebag-Montefiore #853. He was a grandfather of Maude Spielman #243 who married Claude Lousada #213 in 1904. Claude Lousada was a son of Herbert George Lousada #206 who corresponded with Edward Charles Lousada.#20. Sir Joseph was a great-great-great grandfather of Abigail Green and great-great-grandfather of Simon Sebag-Montefiore who both figure in our story. Sir Joseph was a nephew of Sir Moses Montefiore.
