|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
Oberschlettenbach is a small village (population: approx. 156) in the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz and located northwest of Karlsruhe - max. 1 hour by car. The biggest town closest to Oberschlettenbach is Bad Bergzabern.
The cemetery is located on the outskirts of the village. The eldest of the graves in the cemetery dates from 1868. The cemetery is well maintained and in excellent condition. Photos added by Recs Jenkins were taken 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.
