Cemetery notes and/or description:
Full German Name:
Landeseigener Friedhof Berlin-Spandau "In den Kisseln"

"Landeseigener Friedhof", meaning it's a non-denominational cemetery, run by the city. This one is located in the Western part of Berlin, in the district of Spandau.

Address:
Pionierstraße 82-156
13589 Berlin
GERMANY

The cemetery with the size of now 150 acres (605,422 square meters) was opened on November 17, 1886, since the older cemetery in Spandau (opened 20 years earlier) was already beginning to be too small. The location was originally a wooded area with a lot of conifer trees, which were called "Kissel" in the local dialect.
It is the largest necropolis in the city of Berlin. It also contains a large number of military graves from the German-French War 1870/71 and the World Wars I + II.

PLEASE NOTE:
Unlike American cemeteries, due to lack of space, the "final" resting places in Germany are not eternal. The plots are usually leased (subscribed to) for a certain period of time (15-25 years). After that it depends on the descendants (or the community if it's a famous person) to finance another period of 15-25 years.
If no family is left, and the grave is old, the plot is cleaned and will be used for another burial.
