The cemetery is divided into 2 parts: The "old cemetery" is located on the north side of the road while the "new cemetery" is located on the south side of the road. The "old cemetery" is in a beautiful spot, on top of a shady hill. The area is isolated and quiet, very peaceful. The area is well kept, clean and neat. This report only concerns the "old cemetery".
