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.
Something a bit different for the next few weeks – these are gravestones from the Swedish section of the MeÅ¾a kapi cemetery in RÄ«ga, so the inscriptions are in Swedish, not Latvian.
Photo taken by me, October 2012. Click to enlarge.

Name: Erik Johannes Holmberg, born October 17, 1910, died September 2, 1943
