|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Blankenborn is a village in the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz and located northwest of Karlsruhe - max. 1 hour by car. The biggest town closest to Blankenborn is Bad Bergzabern.
The eldest of the present graves in the cemetery dates from 1905. The cemetery is well maintained and in good condition. Photos of gravestones taken in 2004 are by Andreas Drieß.
The re-use of grave plots in Germany is very common. You or your family rent the plot for a period of 20 to 25 years (the time period varies from state to state). When this time period is up, church or civil authorities approach your family or next of kin concerning a rental renewal. If you have no next of kin, they can’t be found or your relatives elect not to renew the rental, the plot is reallocated and re-used.
