On the Catholic Cemetery of Naarden, towards the back, is a large grave where two of Naarden’s priests are buried: J.H.Th. Hermsen and P. Remijn.

Johannes H. Th. Hermsen was born on 15 June 1875. He was ordained on 15 August 1898, and was priest of Naarden from 1927 until his death, on 24 April 1956.

P. Remijn was born on 22 September 1914. He was ordained on 14 May 1940, and came to Naarden in 1966. He died on 17 January 1972.

I could not immediately find them in the main genealogical databases.

    I was wondering if this P.REMIJN was a teacher of religious instruction from 1952 to 1966, at the Petrus Canisius RK Lyceum at Alkmaar. Could you tell me? If not, how could I find out?
