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 25-30 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 25+ years, or the grave is of historical importance (in that case the city of Gladbeck 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. War graves are considered memorials and are eternal.
The war grave section on this cemetery contains the burial plots for 209 civilian victims and military soldiers (65 Germans, 7 Polish and 137 Russians)
