Ixelles - Elsene (Brussels) has been my home for many years but as my family is not from here I do not have any November 1 "obligations" or family graves to attend to in the cemetery.
Lots of activity was going on this All Saints Day in all the cemeteries in Belgium.
In Ixelles, because of its mixed population, all kinds of religions, traditions and burial practices are represented and one finds references to both world wars, to pilots, soldiers, resistance members.
Photo 1 shows the grave of Belgian artist Marcel Broodthaers, famous for making sculptural objects from mussels, egg shells, etc.
Did you ever see an official pet cemetery (last picture)? For me that was a first.
