This 45543 sq mt (11.25 acres) large inner-city cemetery is the second grave yard owned and run by the Lutheran congregation of Alt-Mariendorf in Berlin.
Please note that the final resting places in Germany are not eternal, due to lack of space. This cemetery has a "period of repose" of 20 years. Once the time is up for a renewal of the "lease" the cemetery administration will place a small sticker on the gravestone to alert the family to contact the office of the cemetery. Unless the family of the deceased pays for another period of 20 years, or the grave is of historical importance (in that case the city of Berlin will carry the costs), it will be leveled and re-used. Leftover stones will be collected and eventually crushed and used as gravel in road construction. This cemetery also has a large War Grave Section, those graves are perpetual and kept as memorials.
The original graveyard dating back to the 12th century is located just half a mile away and located around the old village church: Dorfkirchhof Alt-Mariendorf .
