Historical overview

The exact period of the cemetery’s establishment is unknown. Since it was not marked on a cadastral map of 1863, most likely it appeared later. The earliest preserved gravestone relates to the second half of the 19th century. In 2018 3 gravestones were found on the cemetery site. In 2019 gravestones were not detected by ESJF surveyors due to vegetation on the site.
