Hermersbergerhof Cemetery
Rheinland Pfalz, Germany

76848 Hermersbergerhof

Contributed by Recs Jenkins, Dec 17, 2006 [cemeteries@l-s-s.net]. Total records = 33.

Hermersbergerhof is the smallest village incorporated in the municipality of Wigartswiesenand today has very few inhabitants. It is 545 metres above sealevel and is thus the highest inhabited point in the Pfälzer Forest.

The eldest of the graves in Hermersbergerhof's cemetery dates from 1955. The cemetery is well maintained and in excellent condition.

The re-use of grave plots in Germany is very common. You or your family rent the plot for a period of 20 to 25 years (the time period varies from state to state). When this time period is up, church or civil authorities approach your family or next of kin concerning a rental renewal. If you have no next of kin, they can't be found or your relatives elect not to renew the rental, the plot is reallocated and re-used.

The inscription "Zum Gedenken" (In memory of) on gravestones indicates, in general, that the body of the individual in question is not actually buried in the grave. In the cases of soldiers, the body was either never recovered or it was buried somewhere near the place where he was killed.

On many gravestones, an "Eisernes Kreuz" (German Iron Cross) - with or without the date of death - is used to show that the individual was a soldier either killed in action (gef. = gefallen) or missing in action (verm. = vermisst).

Contains all visual burials from tombstone inscriptions, completed by myself and Andreas Driess on 16 December 2006. For further information, in German or English, please contact me at the above address.
