|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
This small church is the oldest building outside the city of Vienna. Built from a parish begun in 1050, some of the oldest sections date to around 1400.
The cemetery was originally located around the church property. With the comlpletion of nearby Friedhof Kagran all graves were relocated except these 18 individuals. Sister Marias tomb and 3 unknown priests are located underneath the bell tower which can be viewed from a small window near the north entrance. For preservation purposes 10 remaining headstones were set into the outside walls (4 on N side, 6 on S side) and the cemetery closed in 1902. There is a cross located on the south-west corner dedicated to victims of the cholera epidemic of 1831/32
