Esbjerg 002 – Fishermen’s Memorial Grove

The granite rotunda was inaugurated on November 3rd 1949 and the granite walls are engraved with the names of the Esbjerg fishermen, who lost their lives at sea since the year 1900.

Originally, the memorial was strictly for fishermen who had been lost at sea and never found. Today though, the names of all the Esbjerg fishermen who lose their lives at sea, are engraved into the walls.

You find the memorial grove at the junction between Sædding Strandvej and Gravlundvej, 6700 Esbjerg.
