  Jewish cemetery in Romny, Ukraine

According to ESJF European Jewish Cemeteries Initiative, the exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. Given it appears on Russian maps as early as the 1870s, it can be inferred the cemetery was founded in the second half of the 19th century. 

The cemetery is partially fenced but it not protected. The older section is severely overgrown with trees and bushes, refuse scattered around. Moreover, there is a Christian section located very close to the old, demolished Jewish graves. The southern section of the cemetery site has been partially built over with private housing, while the adjacent land is occupied by private gardens. However, the new section is well-maintained.


There are about 650 gravestones. There are several graves belonging to baptised Jews and descendants of Jews who were born into mixed families.

Date of oldest tombstone: 1918
Date of newest tombstone: 2018 (Still operational)
