The size prior to WWII was 0.3 ha but today all of the land is under cultivation. There are 0 stones. The present owner is a private individual. The site and adjacent properties are agricultural. The cemetery has been used for crops for over twenty years and thus destroyed. Security and weather erosion are very serious threats.
