Located in the Village of Backemoor. Backemoor is a now part of the municipality of Rhauderfehn, Landkreis Leer.

Lutheran church (Overledingerland, St. Laurentius, once the Diocese of Müster).

This apse church with a shallow, barrel roof and an attached west tower was added in the 15th century. Windows on the long walls were enlarged. The portal was plastered shut. There is a central apse window with original dimensions. The tower has a gable roof with filigreed gable and Gothic architecture. The Baroque altar dates back from 1701 with the pulpit dating from 1709. Noteworthy are traces of paint from the Middle Ages. The church is surrounded by a walled cemetery and tall trees.

NOTE: Only a small fraction of the burials were photographed when the initial memorials were created in 2012-2013.
