Sandefjord Cemetery, Norway, Part II

Master joiner (carpenter) P.L. Gade and his family.

The grave of my great uncle and his second wife.

I wrote about Sandefjord Church and Cemetery in a blog article on 9 June 2010. The cemetery is situated close to where my parents live, so I visit it quite often when I am in Sandefjord. A nice walk between my parents' home and "downtown".

Obviously, the Norwegian winter time is not the best time to visit a cemetery if the purpose is only to do genealogical research! But the cemetery has a kind of beauty also at winter, I would say. The photos were taken on 26 December 2010 (Boxing Day), and most of the close-up photos are of graves of shipowners.
