Summary of the present first page in english.

The Johan Ludvig  Strindberg family grave monument att Norra begravningsplatsen  is  saved. After several years of decay has the cast iron monument in shape of a pillar,  showing the Johan Ludvig grave ,been restored and is again standing upright. Johan Ludvig was the son of Zacharias Strindberg born in Sundsjö 1756.He moved to Stockholm as a child and ended his life as a merchant and freemason 1829. He also  got a Royal Order,i.e. Medal of the Royal Order of the Seraphim. He was the grandfather of the famous writer August Strindberg.

One of his two sons,the eldest Johan Ludvig, bought this  gravesite at the new cemetery ”Norra kyrkogården in Stockholm” in 1847. The cemetery was inagurated in 1827 and is the most famous one in Sweden.

The first one to be buried in the grave was probably Zacharias Strindbergs widow in 1847 and thereafter has 26 named persons and several babies been buried there. Johan Ludvig died in cholera 1854.

Here are  also the parents of August Strindberg, Carl Oskar and Eleonora Strindberg, resting.

The grave has a high cultural value as the pillar in castiron is one of the first representing the new ideals from the 1850:s.

At the beginning the grave was situated on a small artificial hill but the most of these hills at the cemetary were removed in the middle of the 20:th century to make it easier to cut the grass.
