Janice, in Sweden graves are recycled would be the best term I think. All around the outside stone fence of the graveyard were headstones that had been pulled out and leaned against the fence. (Not sure what happens to the remains and nobody there to ask.) So I was very fortunate to find that beautiful headstone still there. My grandfather was the last of his wives and children to die, in 1926. It appears that he was a man of means, according to his probate record, so his estate proceeds went to preserving this family grave. It was thrilling for "my girls" and I to see the headstone and in such a beautiful serene setting.
