The graveyard is characterized by the tall fir forest and the height difference between the highest and the lowest location of the graves.

The architect Lars Bäckvall from Stockholm built the chapel in national romantic style. The first funeral was held in 1911. The bell tower is from 1982 and the memorial park from 1983.

By the northern exit close to the walls, circus princess Baptista Schreibers beloved arabian horse, Menelik, is buried.
