I have relatives buried in both Maria and Elisabet cemeteries in Karleby. I'll ask some relatives in Karleby if they know something about Maria.

Good Morning,

It quite correct that Marie Cemetary is on Bredviksvägen and Anna Cemetary just opposite. However neither of my relatives could give more info on the History behind the name - Marie.

Can rule the architects out as neither of them had the name Marie for the Chapel. Same counts for the other cemetaries, could be interesting to established... :)

Sometimes the names come from the first person that was burried in that paticular cemetery.

Difficult to proof - if that is the case... :( The type of footnote will not do... Maybe time will tell us??
