I went to the oldest cemetary in Waterloo, which is not in use anymore I think the last people who had been burried here were in the 90th and also only because there was a husband, a wife or a family grave.
with this sign
From far you see the mums in all colors.
Most of these graves belong to the wealthy bourgeoisie, some of the names I recognized because streets are named after them.
Here are some which are still visited. Most of the descendants are dead too
Some of the graves are in a pitiful state
The nuns of the "Sacré Coeur" (Holy heart) are burried here.
This one looked like my grandpa on my father's side
A probably beautiful statue, but it is so dirty that it's difficult to see
a quite big monument
Dedicated to fallen soldiers
dedicated to those who were deported
Here are laying soldiers from the first and second world war
This grave was the most beautiful one in terms of flower decoration. I saw a man working on it and I saw him crying. I thought he probably lost his wife not very long ago, but when he had left and I looked at the date it was from 1995 !!
