Cemetery notes and/or description:
Since 1995 it's called Hauptfriedhof Ohlsdorf. Opened in 1877 so far 1.4 million people have been buried there. Currently there are 280,000 burial plots in use. Unlike US cemeteries, the German resting places are not eternal, unless the grave site is considered historically significant, and the community continues to pay for its up-keep. Usually the family of the deceased "leases" the plot for 25-50 years, before the grave is leveled and re-used.



With over 1000 acres in size Ohlsdorf Cemetery the second largest in the world. Just the National Cemetery in Calverton on Long Island (New York) is larger.
