email: admin@nmjct.org;  tel: 0161 795 0735
The North Manchester Jewish Cemeteries Trust was set up in September 2012 out of the realisation that a central organisation was needed if the decline of the community’s cemeteries was to be stopped and reversed.
Its initial objectives are:
1. To identify and implement a programme of works that will in the fullness of time bring all cemeteries up to a standard of which the community can be proud.
2. To make responsibility for cemetery maintenance a community project and not synagogue specific.
3. To establish a level of income that will be regular, sustainable and sufficient to undertake all maintenance and upkeep works required.
To achieve these goals the Trust is being initially funded by the current burial boards. However, to really achieve the desired improvements, the Trust will need much higher levels of funding and will be seeking donations and sponsors in the coming years ahead.
The Trust will be actively fundraising, but if you would like to make a donation to help the work of the Trust please send your cheque to the Trust office at the above address or by direct transfer to: North Manchester Jewish Cemeteries Trust

Rainsough Charitable Trust

The Trust was established to ensure that Jewish cemeteries in Greater Manchester are safe, secure and properly maintained. At Rainsough Cemetery the Trust has already refurbished the Ohel and repaired very extensive damage caused by repeated bouts of mindless vandalism. Further works are in progress to provide more grave spaces and enhance security. Further work and improvements are in hand at other cemeteries, but a great deal remains to be done. Contributions towards this work should contact 07973 165723
