Kópavogur - plot for ashes

The urn plots in Kópavogur are situated in the western part of Kópavogur Cemetery where there is space for 5,100 graves.  Bishop Karl Sigurbjörnsson, Bishop of Iceland, consecrated the garden on 10th August 2006, and the urn of Guðmundur Helgason, painter, was buried in the first grave in this cemetery.  It is a symbol of changing times that the ‘guardian' of the graveyard rests in an urn plot, because of an increase in the number of people who nowadays prefer cremation.
