I think this might be the first Jewish memorial posted on the forum.

UKNIWM No. 54472

This is one of several memorials in Garnethill Synagogue, however, this is the only one listed by the UKNIWM.

More on the history of the Synagogue can be found here.

Woops! Laughing

I looked at the WW2 Memorial Plaque and only saw Bertram Levitus - I should have checked the stained glass window before opening my big gob!

So it's possible the one described below from a now demolished synagogue at South Portland Street could be there?

Probably not, the other memorials are all for the Second World War, and are all on the project.

Mystery solved ......

I've found what I presume must be the memorial referred to in the Glasgow Herald from the 'now demolished synagogue at South Portland Street'.

It's now housed in the Prayer Rooms of Glenduffhill Jewish Cemetery on Hallhill Road, Barlanark, Glasgow.

There are 70 names (as described) + 2 additions.
