Tiel

Cemetery, Ter Navolging.

One of the oldest Dutch (non-Jewish) cemeteries built outside the city walls. It dates from 1786. Many of the ancient tombs have a horizontal capstone. Just like the cover stones in a church grave. Many stones are still under the green, and regular “new” graves are found. This is mainly due to a group of enthusiastic volunteers who maintain the cemetery.

 


 

In 1827 by the Jewish community in Tiel purchased this piece of land to serve as a burial place. It is a simple enclosed cemetery with modest designed tombstones, typical characteristics of a Jewish cemetery.
