In 1999, I visited a small (a few thousand burial sites) in Szentes, Hungary. The gated cemetery was maintained by a stonecutter and his wife. Szentes had a synagogue that was torn down for the town library some years ago. Some of the birth, death, and marriage books have been preserved and are kept at a large building that was once the preburial chamber for the cemetery. The cemetery has some modest gravestones and some rather elaborate sites. Most of the cemetery was overgrown with ivy. Source: Andrew Hegedus This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.

The cemetery is in good condition. Cemetery caretaker is Ferencné Buk. [March 2009]
