      “….In the middle of the Cemetery, close to the mound, is a very rare Jewish example of a bust of a woman: Miriam, wife of Moses Levy, identified as Miriam Levey (sic) 1801-1856 a welfare worker who opened the first soup kitchens in the East End. Her tomb is in the form of a square obelisk with four faces, decorated with figurative reliefs”
