Lauterschwan Cemetery
Erlenbach, Rheinland Pfalz, Germany

76891 Lauterschwan

Contributed by Recs Jenkins, Aug 08, 2004 [cemeteries@l-s-s.net]. Total records = 41.

Lauterschwan was once a small village (today part of the village of Erlenbach) in the German state of Rheinland-Pfalz and located northwest of Karlsruhe, max. 1 hour by car. The biggest town closest to Lauterschwan is Bad Bergzabern.

The cemetery is well maintained and in excellent condition. The eldest of the graves in the cemetery dates from 1929.

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 01 Aug 2004. For further information, in German or English please contact me.
