The linked headstones of two lovers who refused to let go, even in Death
Until 40 years ago, Catholic and protestant establishments in the Netherlands were separate from one another as a result of Pillarisation, a widespread politico-denominational segregation. Churches, supermarkets, and other public places were segregated by religious and political beliefs.
All of this sets the scene to the story of Protestant Colonel J.C.P.H of Aeffderson and Catholic noblewoman J.W.C Van Gorkum. Their marriage would’ve caused a storm of scandal back in the 19th century. Not only was it religiously mixed, but they were from two very different social classes. However, despite all of the taboo in 19th century society, the couple’s marriage lasted for 40 years, only ending with the colonel’s death.
Eight years later, when his wife passed away, her wishes dictated that she wanted to be buried next to her husband. Pillarisation was still in effect at the time, and according to the law, this was impossible. However, with a little creative stonework, both Husband and wife were linked eternally together in a different way.

This grave can be found on cemetery Nabij de Kapel in ‘t Zand (also called ‘the Old Cemetery) in Roermond in Limburg. The atlasobscura post, however, has the names mixed up.
Protestant Colonel J.W.C. van Gorcum married Catholic noblewoman J.C.P.H. van Aefferden.
The Colonel died on the 29th of August 1880, and the wife wanted to be buried next to him upon her own death. But since the cemetery was divided in a Catholic part and a Protestant part that seemed to be impossible. The solution was to bury the Colonel on the edge of the Protestant section, against the wall, and the Catholic wife on the edge of the Catholic section. She died on the 29th of November 1888. This meant she wasn’t buried in the family grave of the Van Aefferden family.
The cemetery also has two Jewish sections and a ‘lost’ section, for those without religion, those who commited suicide or were found dead and washed up in the river Maas.
