Lorentzen grave, Asker kirkegård, Norway

Yesterday on my way home from Easter vacation at Blefjell I made a short stop at Asker kirkegård (Asker Cemetery) in order to take new photos of the Lorentzen grave after the burial of Erling Lorentzen on 22 March. Erling Lorentzen, the widower of Princess Ragnhild, died on 9 March 2021 and was buried next to his wife.

I hadn't visited this cemetery since the summer of 2013 when I among others took photographs of Princess Ragnhild Mrs. Lorentzen's grave following her death and burial the previous year.

Back in 2013 I promised to return with a blog article on other graves in the cemetery, and one of these days I hope to fulfill the promise ... 


  1. Very nice photo. I notice what I assume is a candle on the right in front of the marker. Is that typical in a Norwegian cemetery?

  2. Yes, such a candle light is quite common. A beautiful sight at dark winter nights!
