The cemetery is located in Liverpool and has been recently granted money to restore the Jewish plot. A good thing too as it’s another piece of history that we shouldn’t let go to waste, well that and of course there’s always a good ghost story or point of interest if I’ve dug it up to read about right?

The Dean Road Cemetery is a burial ground that has been used for numerous Jewish families dating back to the 17th Century. It fell into disrepair sometime in the 18th Century, and residents around the area have said they heard children’s screams in the middle of the night or in the houses the doors slammed and furniture would sometimes be found moved without explanation.

Some of the older houses on the street may well have been part of the slave trade, slaves were undoubtedly kept in some horrific conditions in larger homes as the basements could be used to keep them away from prying eyes during the 198th Century. There have been reports of screaming, scratching sounds, loud footsteps, doors shutting and locking… and even possession.
