Ever since the Jewish Cemetery Trust (JCT) merged into the Rookwood Cemetery Trust there have been concerns about the fate of the wonderful resource that is the JCT database. The good news is that the database continues to be maintained and new burial details are uploaded weekly. This will continue until such time as the other denominations update and upgrade their data capture to the same standard as the Jewish database. The JCT website will only be merged into a general Rookwood cemetery database when it can be demonstrated that it provides the same access to data as currently exists.
