In section X, grave positions and stone positions are unrelated. In 28 cases the tombstones of the deceased are positioned in another row than the graves. In a number of further cases, the sequence of graves differs from that of the tombstones. Consequently the menu above has separate selections for grave rows and stone rows.

Section X is the oldest one in Mollegade. It is located on areas annexed to the cemetary in 1694, 1704, 1715 (the so-called sephardic part), 1748, and 1768. Towords the center avenue it used to be demarcated by a wooden fence, and the graves along this fence (row X-18) originally had tomb stones with the front turned towards Mollegade - like the newer graves along the wall to Birkegade in section MB (cf. the chronological animation). The oldest tombstones of section X (i.e. on the midmost parts of the rows) are today very difficult to decipher.

There is a total of 940 known and locatable burials in section X
