Willet Street Cemetery

This cemetery is located at 2254 Fulton Road, in the Ohio City neighborhood of Cleveland. This was the first Jewish cemetery established in Cleveland, having been purchased July 7 1840 from Josiah Barber. Its first burial was shortly thereafter. It is one of two cemeteries operated by United Jewish Cemeteries, which is a joint venture of Fairmount Temple (Anshe Chesed) and The Temple (Tifereth Israel). Records are kept at Mayfield Cemetery. There is a combination lock on the gate. Call Mayfield Cemetery for entry information. The Cleveland JGS has an enumeration of this cemetery in its Research Library Collection at the Fairmount Temple Library.
