Entrance gate to the Restmount Cemetery

Restmount Cemetery is located on Oxford Street West, east of Wonderland Road – adjacent to Or Shalom Cemetery. It was established in 1933 by a group of London families who wanted an alternative Jewish burial site not bound by traditional Jewish rituals.

In order to maintain continuity, the Restmount Corporation board approached Temple Israel to form a joint committee. Restmount Cemetery was officially renamed Restmount Temple Israel Cemetery Corporation, with a new board consisting of representatives of Temple Israel members and members who are lineal descendants of the founding families.
