Cemeteries in the Netherlands

Traveling in Europe

As I have a weird kind of attraction to cemeteries I did visit 2 cemeteries in Zeeland in the Netherlands. There are many graves here from people who died at the disaster of 1953, when the province of Zeeland was flooded by the sea and 1836 people lost their life. The first photo under was taken at the "General Cemetery Brouwershaven". It is a typically head-stone with black letters and black band with text :
"Here rests our daughter and sister Nelly de Jonge, born on 15 Juni 1949 and killed in the disaster of 1 February 1953"


Broken head-stone
Wooden head board
Mostly head-stones in 1 style
Finally something different
