The author Ari Behn, former husband of Princess Märtha Louise of Norway, died on 25 December 2019, 47 years old. The funeral service took place at Oslo domkirke (Oslo Cathedral) on 3 January 2020

Due to the pandemic, the urn interment at Vår Frelsers gravlund (Our Saviour's Cemetery) in Oslo was postponed. The family finally decided to have a private interment ceremony on 30 September 2020, which would have been Ari Behn's 48th birthday.

On the headstone one can find his name, birth and death date and signature engraved, besides the text «Du er høyt elsket av alle» («You are much beloved by everyone»).

  1. Will you please eventually photograph the headstones of Gregers Gram, his son of the same name, Finn Alnaes and Sven Arntzen at Vestre gravlund (Oslo Western Civil Cemetery) for FaG? That website does not have any photos of those headstones yet.
