One will sometimes find a lack of old monuments in an old cemetery; this is caused by the German custom of reuse of a burial site. Burials are in wooden caskets, metal ones and in ground concrete vaults are forbidden. In America, one purchases a plot and it is theirs for eternity, here the plot is leased for 20-30 years depending on the cemetery and at the end of the lease the family is asked if they wish to renew for another term. If they do not renew, the monument and all decorations are removed and the space is leased to someone else for their burials. At times the old monuments are still being used but by a different family while the original occupants are still listed, at other times, the part of the monument that listed the original occupants are reversed or replaced in its entirety.
