St. Cosmae crypts
Floor plan of the church St. Cosmae in Stade around 1787 showing the sites of the crypts inside the church. The diagram was made before all the graves were moved to a new graveyard outside of town. There is a list which details who bought each of the sites. This list states that David Heinrich Wyneken purchased lots 3 and 9 (the right and left corners in front of the altar) for himself and his heirs in 1724.
