Last resting place for Johan Martin Ferner

Johan Martin Ferner, the husband of Princess Astrid, died on 24 January 2015, 87 years old. The funeral service took place at Holmenkollen Chapel in Oslo on 2 February. According to the website of Gravferdsetaten i Oslo (the Cemetery Administration in Oslo), the urn was interred at Ris Cemetery in Oslo on Monday 15 June 2015. The urn grave has been leased together with 3 other (now empty) urn graves.

As one can see from the photos, the headstone has not yet been put up, so I will have to pay the cemetery another visit later this year to take new photos.

The urn grave can be found at section 20 close to the church. A map of the cemetery can be viewed here.
