Anchor from The Crescent

The English frigate, The Crescent, shipwreched at Mårup in 1808. Denmark and England were at war at that time after the English had bombed Copenhagen in 1807, and the survivors from the ship were exchanged for Danish prisoners of war. More than 200 from The Crescent died. 69 survived. 
The anchor was salvaged and displayed at the cemetery in 1939.
