Search Palanga Cemetery:

Palanga Cemetery (Palangos miesto kapines) is located in the north part of Palanga and along the west side of Klaipeda Road (Klaipedos plentas). It is configured as 2 disconnected sections whose borders are 100 meters apart at their closest point. Aside from here, burials in this cemetery are also selectively posted on the website https://www.palangoskapines.lt.

The old (south) section measures 240 meters north-to-south and 200 meters east-to-west with a piece of the northeast quadrant cut out where the funeral home lies. The resulting L-shaped old section is about 4 hectares (10 acres) in area. The old section is surrounded by a solid brink or cement wall with the main entrance in the nook of the “L” facing the funeral home. The terrain is flat with a light tree cover; monuments face toward the east. The old section appears to have filled up and reached the point where burials would be restricted to families with existing lots.

The new (north) section is an oblong measuring 65 meters north-to-south and 160 meters east-to-west, making a land area of 1 hectare (2.5 acres). It is flat, treeless and surrounded by a black metal fence. The new section is only half full, and the death dates on the monuments suggest that it was established around the year 2000.
