This old, now defunct cemetery was consecrated in 1823, it was the third cemetery opened in Horst. It is known for many old crypts and mausoleums. In July of 1950 the magistrate of Gelsenkirchen decided to close the cemetery but allowed burials into the late 1970 in old family plots or crypts. Families were allowed to have their ancestors re-buried in other city cemeteries. In 1980 the city re-dedicated the area to a park, which is now locally known as the "Park of Bones" (German: Knochenpark).
