Do we know of any of the burial places of rishonim around France (and England). I know rabbi Yisrael Meir gabbai has found some but are there any tools to source ancient jewish cemeteries e.g. a map.


It is unlikely that there are any Rishonim buried in England, if there is there are not many. Many Rishonim are buried in France though. - Rashi - Rabbeinu Tam - Rashbam - Ri - The Radak many others.

    The Ri meorleans was murdered in London, so likely buried in a graveyard in the UK. Unfortunately unknown. R'yom tov mi joingy was murdered in York; although we do know where the York cemetery is it apparently the victims of that massacre were not buried there – user15253 Jul 22 '19 at 18:47
  • Not the Ri meorleans, I am talking about Ri HaZaken, Rashi's son. – AvrohomKanievsky Jul 22 '19 at 19:03
  • I know. Just pointing out that there are well-known rishomim buried in the uk – user15253 Jul 22 '19 at 20:13
