Cemetery notes and/or description: The cemetery was established around 1900 in the then independent village of Horbach. It has a size of just 2.5 acres and is now one of 25 cemeteries in the city of Aachen:
There are/were also 6 Jewish Cemteries in the city: Jüdischer Friedhof Eilendorf (defunct) Jüdischer Friedhof Haaren (defunct) Jüdischer Friedhof Kornelimünster (defunct) Jüdischer Friedhof Lütticher Straße Jüdischer Friedhof Hüls Jüdischer Friedhof im Waldfriedhof Aachen
Please note that the graves in Germany are not perpetual. After a certain period of repose (20-30 years) the graves are being leveled and re-used. There is no toxic embalming being done in Germany, so the coffin and the corpse have decomposed naturally. If the family of the deceased decides to purchase another period the duration can be extended by another 30 years. War Graves are considered memorials and are kept up by the owner of the cemetery. Those are kept forever.
