Hi arvika8,

Have you found what you were looking for in the database you were given a link to? If not, I work quite close to the cemetery you're talking about and would be willing to go and check if I can find the markers you're talking about and take photos.

Best,
Sarah

Dear Per,

I went to the cemetery on Monday and searched through most of the Z section, but without luck. However, some of the markers are quite weather-beaten and hard to read. Which is why I have managed to enlist the help of the cemetery administration. I just spoke to them and am going to email them your list of names, dates and plot numbers, and they are going to search their files for them. They lady I spoke to was very nice and helpful, but informed me that they are seriously understaffed at the moment, so I may not hear back from them until next week. The good thing is, the death registers survived both wars, so if your information is correct, we will find them in there. The downside is, though, that graves in Germany are "recycled". Unless someone has been paying for their lease and/or upkeep, we will find your relatives in the files and the plots where they were buried, but their graves will be gone, and with them the markers. But I'll let you know what I've found as soon as I hear back from the cemetery administrators.

Best wishes,
Sarah

Hi Per,

No worries, I volunteered for it and had fun doing it! As it happens, this is one of the more picturesque cemeteries in the area and one with what seems to me a disproportionate number of older graves (~150 years old, which I don't often see around here). It was interesting!

I tried to send you a private message through your profile, but the option is blocked. If you message me with a way to contact you, I'll send you my email address and the details of the cemetery administrator who is looking up the graves. I would rather not post them here as the forums are publicly accessible. There should be a contact option on my profile page.

Best wishes,
Sarah
