Nicolas Malapert Lord Plettenburg

In the historic Kerkveld cemetery in Nieuwegein there are several older tombstones that belonged to the local nobility.

Originally there was also a church on this site, but in the early 19th century that was demolished to be replaced by a larger church elsewhere in the village. The church tower was converted into a bier house, which is still there. The...
