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.
