Around All Saints’ Day, thousands of people come to Skogskyrkogården to remember, honor and celebrate loved ones who have departed.

Many choose to adorn their relatives’ graves with winter decorations and candles in the week before. The Cemeteries Administration opens up all of Skogskyrkogården’s chapels for the whole of All Saints’ Day, providing music in many of them.

We help people to find the graves of relatives by having staff and extra equipment on site to print out maps and assist with online searches at
