It is open to all with no wall, fence, or gate. The present size of the cemetery is 1 ha. No stones are visible. Stones from the cemetery were used to build private structures. There are no known mass graves. The municipality owns the cemetery used for agriculture, as are adjacent properties. Private visitors rarely visit. It was vandalized during WWII.
