Did not realise that this burial ground was situated right here in the middle of Millfleet, although it is totally locked all the time, it was surprisingly interesting as it is a Jewish Cemetry

The burial ground contains the remains of several Dutch Jewish families who settled in Kings Lynn a few centuries ago. Small and unremarkable, but still poignant. It is closed, but a key can be obtained from the council if you have bona fide Jewish or...More

We came across this small burial ground unexpectedly. The gate was locked with no indication of any key-holder, but we were able to look through the gate at the 19c gravestones etc in this neat cemetery.

Saw the inside of this cemetery for the first time during Kings Lynn's Heritage Open Day. There was a very informative guide and historical information was available. Usually though the site is locked but I understand the key is available from the local council.

I have loved this place for so many years. It is small and easily missed but recognises the Jewish community of Kings Lynn.
