The Manchester Jewish Museum is on Cheetham Hill Road just outside the Manchester City Centre. The museum is the old Portuguese Synagogue built in 1874. The museum offers an interesting account of the Jewish history in Manchester and is worth a visit.

Sorry, I really can't help you on that front. Perhaps try contacting the museum directly as they may have local contacts. Regards Rob

You might want to try Fulda's Hotel in Bury Old Road, Manchester. Good luck in tracing your ancestry and have a good trip.
