In this series, I am providing pictures of tombstones from Latvian cemeteries, all with death dates prior to 1945. I do not have any further information on the people mentioned.

Photo taken by me, April 2012. Click to enlarge.

Name: Krišjānis Skricfreijs (old orthography Cristjahn Skritzfreij), born January 15, 1820, died June 14, 1895

Inscription: “Esi uzticÄ«gs lÄ«dz nāvei, tad es tevÄ«m doÅ¡u to dzÄ«vÄ«bas kroni” (“Be faithful unto death, then I will give you that crown of life”)

Location: Dubulti cemetery, JÅ«rmala

Words on the tombstone are in old Latvian orthography, my transcription is in modern orthography.
