Carrera Book Reconstructed

An important goal of the restoration, is to reconstruct to the degree possible, the carrerra (row) book of the cemetery. we know from contemporary sources that the old main cemetery was full, even though there were spaces with no tombstones. especially, the earliest part of the graveyard has many unmarked graves, or graves where the markers have disintegrated utterly.

The Carrerra Book for the main graveyard has been reconstructed by Evan Millner, and commences with the earliest burials. The numbering runs from the Courtyard, moving towards the outer wall along Magazine Lane.

Thank you for sharing this most interesting blog on Jewish heritage in Barbados. A Jewish family from Israel lived in my home for four years before returning to their native home in 2005.

Shalom
