    > Where is this graveyard located?
    In Heidelberg-Ziegelhausen.

    Small problem: there are 2 cemeteries there. An old one (still in use) and a new one. And I even couldn't find in which of both his grave is.

    map
    map-service.heidelberg.de/hd...
    Search for: "Parks and cemetries"
    Subcategory: "Cemeteries"
    Name: "Ziegelhausen"

    1/3 Alter Friedhof Ziegelhausen (the old one in the mid of Ziegelhausen)
    2/3 Friedhof Ziegelhausen/Peterstal (in Peterstal, not in Ziegelhausen)
    3/3 Neuer Friedhof Ziegelhausen (on a hill (just above the last houses) above Ziegelhausen)

    If it is so difficult to locate the gravesite I would contact the city's administration. Normally, the Birth, Deaths and Marriages office (Standesamt), should be able to answer your question.

    So I would look here first thing:

    heidelberg.de/servlet/PB/men...

    There is also an email on the website:

    Standesamt@Heidelberg.de
