This Jewish (orthodox rites) cemetery was opened in 1941, primarily as a result of the influx of Jewish evacuees and refugees during World War II. It is primarily for members of the Cambridge Traditional Jewish Community (the City's orthodox Jewish congregation) and is owned by the Chevra Kadisha (burial society) of the Cambridge Jewish Residents Association burials.
An additional (orthodox) Jewish Section, at the new Dry Dayton Cemetery, has recently been established by the Chevra Kadisha. [Source: David Shulman, 2016]
A Reform Jewish Section of the Newmarket Road Cemetery was established in 1984, primarily for members of the City's Beth Shalom Reform Synagogue.
