The United Jewish Community Cemetery (Jewish Memorial Gardens) is a faithful reprint of the original book of cemetery monument transcriptions that was published in 1997. The United Jewish Community Cemetery, also known as the Old Jewish Cemetery, (and now known as Jewish Memorial Gardens) was originally recorded in the Fall of 1988, and subsequently updated in October 1996, and then published in early 1997. Most monuments are engraved in English, however there several monuments that are engraved in Hebrew. Translation has been provided for the Hebrew monuments.

    Street address: 2692 Bank St. 2692 Bank St, Gloucester, ON K1T 1K9
Contents include: Cemetery History
    "There is no written record of the history of the Old Jewish cemetery. We believe it was started in the late 1890's or early 1900's by the existing synagogues of Ottawa at that time. Aguath Achim on Rideau St. and Adath Jeshrum on King Edward Ave. amalgamated in 1954 to form the present Beth Shalom Congregation. In 1969, the small James St. synagogue decided to close and also joined Beth Shalom. By virtue of these amalgamations, the cemetery lands of all these congregations became the property of Beth Shalom. Machiziki Hadas always had its own section and presently holds about 25% of the Bank St. Cemetery. Agudath Israel, which incorporated about 1940, acquired a small strip, and holds about 15% of the total cemetery. Beth Shalom holds the rest - about 60% of the total. There are only these three owners of land. Long ago, the leaders of the Jewish Community decided to leave the ownership of cemetery lands to the synagogues, and it has been thus ever since. Although the synagogues run their cemetery under the auspices of the Jewish Community Council, they are to all intents and purposes administered and funded by the synagogues themselves. The Bank St. cemetery occupies about 14 acres of land, and is about 60% occupied or sold out (1993). The major portion of remaining plots are owned by the Beth Shalom Congregation" - Extracted from the the book.

    The cemetery benefited from a complete renovation that was finished in 2016. The Cemetery is know known as Jewish Memorial Gardens The address in 2018 is 2692 Bank Street, Gloucester, Ontario, K1T 1K9
