Looking for burial place in Norway for Birgitte, her husband, and their 2 sons J.W. and Bernt Klüver. Birgitte was back and forth between Norway and USA. But I believe she died in Norway in August 1935.

Birgitte's father was Rev. Bernt Julius Muus, founder of St. Olaf College.
Thanks much, Kay

The OCR read of newspaper Aftenposten dated 22 Aug 1935 lists her burial at 14 hours (2 pm) in Var Frelsers gravlund.

According to the encyclopeida of Norwegian artists, Bernt Klüver changed his last name to Clüver. He died in Oslo on April 2, 1941. https://nkl.snl.no/Bernt_Julius_Muus_Cl%C3%BCver

I do not find him at the search site for Norwegian graves: https://www.disnorge.no/gravminner/vis.php?mode=x

This page contains some data on the children of Birgitte Muus and Lorentz Klüver: http://www.kluwer.no/ldk/REFSAAS.61G1.html

The Johan Wilhelm Klüver born in 1890 lived to a ripe age and was buried in Steinkjer in 1986, in a family grave with his father and several others:

This doesn't quite work -- the search I made isn't preservef in the link, but just search for first name Johan Wilhelm and last name Klüver at the given site. (The umlaut is necessary to get the right match.)

I looked at the original. Vår frelsers gravlund refers to the next burial. Birgitte Klüver was buried at Vestre gravlund.

This geni page shows a photo of the gravestone for the daughter Else Marie Berethe.

You can also find it at http://www.disnorge.no/gravminner/vis.php?mode=fy
