The area of land used for cemeteries in Switzerland has remained the same for many years.  There is no extra ground to expand them thus forcing them to cycle through their various plots.  Many cemeteries have headstones that only date back 25 years, but varies according to location.  Seldom will you find a headstone dating back more than 40 years unless it is a headstone of a pastor or very prominate citizen in their town.  Even in smaller, more rural communities the headstones are not older than about 30 years.
