Stalsberghagen gravlund og krematorium (Stalsberghagen Cemetery and Crematorium) is situated in Lillestrøm municipality (earlier Skedsmo municipality) at the boarder of Rælingen municipality east of Oslo. The cemetery was opened for burials in 1901.

I visited the cemetery Thursday this week to take photos of two graves to be used in articles at Slektshistoriewiki, the Norwegian genealogy wiki (these photos are not included in the blog article). But I after fulfilling my mission I walked around for a while and took photos of some of the graves which I found interesting. Some attractive or old headstones and some family names that caught my attention. The cemetery is divided by Øvre Rælingsveg into two parts. The old part, where all the photos above are taken and where the chapels are, and the new part, made available for burials in the 1960s. The new part also includes a section for Muslims.
The Large Chapel (I haven't decided if it would be most correct to translate Store kapell into «The Great Chapel» or «The Large Chapel» and Lille kapell into «The Small Chapel» or «The Little Chapel») and crematorium was inaugurated in 1958 and the original chapel was torn down. The Large Chapel has 200 seats, while The Little Chapel, which was built in 1990 at the same place where the old chapel was once standing, has 50 seats. You can see a photo of the old chapel at Lokalhistoriewiki. For photos of the interior, go here (The Large Chapel) and here (The Little Chapel).
* Postscript 3 May 2021 at 18:45: The answer to my question about the Stalsberg inscription on top of the Holmsen family grave was easy to work out. Johan Andreas Holmsen (1843–1921) was farming at Stalsberg nordre (Northern Stalsberg) at Strømmen in Skedsmo (now Lillestrøm municipality). He even found his wife from Stalsberg søndre (Southern Stalsberg)! See among others Slegten Holmsen, 1934, p. 91, by Gudrun Jølsen.
