|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
The Ehrenfriedhof (Cemetery of Honor) contains the graves of over 1800 persons from the Lübeck area who died in World War I and World War II, both military and civilian. There are both actual graves, and memorial cenotaphs for soldiers who were killed and buried elsewhere. The cemetery lies in a 5 hectare (12 acre) wooded area of beech trees, between the streets Travemünder Allee and Sandberg in the northern part of Lübeck. There are seven enclosed sections (Grabfelder) along with open areas around them.
Grabfeld 1: World War I deaths
Grabfeld 2: World War I deaths
Grabfeld 3: World War I deaths
Grabfeld 4: World War I and following years
Grabfeld 6: World War II deaths
Grabfeld 7: World War II civilian victims of 1942 Palm Sunday bombing of Lübeck
Grabfeld 8: World War II deaths
In addition there are hundreds of graves and memorial cenotaphs for war dead spread over the open wooded areas outside the enclosed grave fields, the majority from World War I.
