Together Forever

Written by: George Chittenden : 27 Aug 2019

This rather heart-breaking photo shows the graves of a Catholic woman and her Protestant husband, who were not allowed to be buried together. On the Protestant side of this cemetery, the husband, Colonel of the Dutch Cavalry is buried. His wife, lady J.C.P.H van Aefferden is buried in the Catholic part.

The couple were married in 1842, and when the Colonel died in 1880, he was buried on the protestant part of the cemetery against the wall. When lady Aefferden died in 1888 her final wish was granted. She had decided not to be buried in her family tomb but against the wall, the closest she could get to her husband. Two clasped hands connect the graves across the wall.
