They worship the same Christian god, it makes no sense for both to be separated.
The cemetery is a natural monument because of these graves. Therefor all other graves in the cemetery are also kept in the same state as they were, in contrast to other cemeteries in the Netherlands where graves are leased for a period of time.
Many people today can’t imagine how much resentment was between catholics and protestants in many Western countries, even just 70, 60 years ago. The religion you belonged to was still very important, you didn’t have that much contact with people from the other group and might have seen them with some prejudice. And marriages between both groups were heavily frowned. It was very easy becoming a social outcast because of stuff like this, especially in rural areas.
Crazy their graves just did that on their own
