On the Eversberg cemetery of honor rest 915 war dead of the 2nd World War, who came from all parts of Germany. Mainly buried here are soldiers who fell in March/April in the Sauerland. The graves of the soldiers led by Field Marshal Model were scattered all over Sauerland. Some of them were located in meadows, gardens or even in field paths. But the soldiers' graves were also located in church or municipal cemeteries.

It turned out to be difficult to find a suitable cemetery site. Soil conditions on the Klausenberg in Meschede or at the chapel in Winkhausen did not allow a reburial. Finally the present site near Eversberg was found. The construction of this site began in the fall of 1958, and the last reburials took place in 1961.

The design of the chapel was done by the artist Schmidt-Elk. Rüthen sandstone was used as the material. The inauguration of the work of art "Mourning and Consolation" took place on July 09, 1961.
