The most famous civilian grave in the cemetery may be that of Hungarian-born British archaeologist Aurel Stein, famed for his exploration of the "Silk Road" across Central Asia. For years he was denied permission to enter Afghanistan to study the military campaigns of Alexander the Great. He was finally allowed to enter in 1943, only to die in Kabul, the capital, that year.
