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 Meža kapi cemetery in Rīga, so the inscriptions are in Swedish, not Latvian.
Photo taken by me, October 2012. Click to enlarge.
Top inscription: “Här vilar motorman” (“Here lies motorman”)
Name: Erik Johannes Holmberg, born October 17, 1910, died September 2, 1943
Location: Swedish section, Meža kapi, Rīga
