The Falmouth Jewish Cemetery is located on Duke Street. It is surrounded by a stone wall.

I was happy that I had someone to help me clear vines and bushes from around some of the tombstones so that I could read them. Seen on the left "Sacred to the Memory of David De Casseres. This tomb is erected by his only son". On the right "To the dear memory of Hannah de Casseres... as a last tribute of loving affection by her only surviving sister...".

With his help I was able to put some broken pieces together so that other tombstones could be read (September 2002).

The Georgian Society is now proceeding with the restoration of the cemetery, and as of April 2004 26 graves had been restored.
