The old cemetery of Doorn
Last week I visited the Oude Algemene Begraafplaats (Old General Cemetery) of the village Doorn. A beautiful cemetery, with many trees. As it was early November, the cemetery was completely covered with recently fallen autumn leaves.
The cemetery opened in the last quarter of the 19th century, but I could not find any 19th century graves. I saw quite a few, though, that were over a century old. It was in use until the 1950s, when a new, larger cemetery opened nearby. People can still be buried in their family graves, but no new plots are given out anymore.
I will highlight individual graves in future posts, but for now enjoy my photo impression of an old Dutch cemetery in the fall.
