Cemetery notes and/or description:
The cemetery was opened in 1875 and is still active.

Friedhof Walle
Im Freien Meer 32
28219 Bremen

Tel. 0421 / 33611- 147 09

It has a size of about 72 acres and is one of the largest grave yards in Bremen. It also contains a war grave section with the graves of 610 fallen soldiers (465 from WW I and 145 from WW II).
Please note that the final resting places in Germany are not eternal, due to lack of space. This cemetery has a "period of repose" of 30 years. Once the time is up for a renewal of the "lease" the cemetery administration will place a small sticker on the gravestone to alert the family to contact the office of the cemetery. Unless the family of the deceased pays for another period of 30 years, or the grave is of historical importance (in that case the city of Bremen will carry the costs), it will be leveled and re-used. Leftover stones will be collected and eventually crushed and used as gravel in road construction.
