Jaffa Cemetery (1868), designed by Cornelis de Bruyn Kops. Founded by private initiative. Municipal cemetery since 1874. The oldest part contains several old slabs and tomb marks of prominent citizens of Delft. Assembly hall (1930) designed in an expressionistic style by Gerriet Gebben.
At the entrance an administrator’s house was built, also designed by De Bruyn Kops. In 2011 this house was taken over by funeral cooperation De Laatste Eer, who restored the building and renamed it Familiehuis Jaffa. It is used for small scale burials.
