A project to replace the original gravestone, which was extremely difficult to decipher, was begun in 2010. The new gravestone contains the original wording, as close as possible, along with an English translation. The original wording wasn't in perfect German, so it was difficult to come up with an English translation which was perhaps 100% accurate however it should be reasonably close. It had been hoped the new gravestone would be erected in 2011 as engraved on the stone, however there were delays and the stone was actually in place in July 2012. Contributions to help with the cost are still appreciated. For more information, contact Allan at
