|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This beautiful church can be seen right off the road and the cemetery is open to the public. The church is closed normally to the public expect for services. The cemetery is very large, but in a way very disappointing for researchers looking for older ancestors. The area has been recycled and now at least 90% of the area is of grave stones from 1990 and newer. There are some old graves from the 1700's but they were prominant people such as priest, political figures or wealthy farmers of the area. Many poor people may have been buried here but their location is no longer marked.
The small building on the back of the church is called a Sakristiet. This was and is the place were mothers would wait with their babies before being baptized.
