Norra Sandby kyrkogård

Skåne län  Sweden

Cemetery notes and/or description:
North Sandby Churchyard is located in a rural farmland village by that name (Norra Sandby) northeast of the town of Hässleholm and northwest of Kristianstad, in the historic Göinge district of Sweden's southernmost province of Scania (Skåne). This area was the scene of the fiercest struggles between Danish and Swedish interests, when Sweden had conquered Scania and took it over in the 17th century. Many of the farms have ancient barriers made of piled stones, separating the fields, and stone bridges over brooks, making the whole area unusually picturesque. This cemetery was laid out when a new church was to be built for the parish. A lot called "Lilla Ladugårdstoft" belonging to the Kungsgården estate (Royal Farm) was allocated though a rental agreement in 1858, and (new) North Sandby Church was finished there in 1864. In 1893, the Crown donated the cemetery lot to North Sandby Parish, which today is combined with Stoby Parish. (J T Demitz)
