Willesden Cemetery opened in 1873 and is the burial place of 900 historic or notable figures, meaning it is significant both as part of the UK’s national heritage and as part of its place in Jewish history at an international level. More recently it has become hidden within an industrial part of London. A first-round pass has been awarded to make Willesden Cemetery a heritage and cultural destination where people can learn about Jewish history in the UK. The project will conserve the graves so they are physically safe and interpret the stories behind them.

Tricolor was appointed by United Synagogue to undertake research, consultation, advice and planning to write an Activity Plan to accompany the NLHF Round 2 application for £1.7m.
