The cemetery Nieuwe Oranjetuin (New Orange Garden) is situated between the Gravenstraat and the Nassylaan and borders the Swalmbergstraat to the west. It was founded in the beginning of the 18th century. Before that periode the well to do Dutch Reformed citizens were buried in the Oranjetuin, which is now the Kerkplein (Church square). The tombstones of natural stone which were used in those days were ordered in the Netherlands (also see the Dutch Reformed Church page).
In the Nieuwe Oranjetuin the shrines were mainly erected in brick. The craftsmanship of the masons of that time clearly shows in these works.
At the bottom of this page some shrines at the cemetery Oud Lina's Rust in the Wanicastraat are shown.
