Nice to hear from you.

Perhaps the town is Esbjerg (a town on the west coast of Jutland/Jylland).

The place name is Esbjerg, Jerne sogn, Skast herred, Ribe amt, Denmark.

Could be in Kvaglund sogn as of 1971? Iím uncertain of the church history on that.

For help answering your questions about the burial place and about living relatives, consider the forum DIS-Danmark: Find Your Relatives in Denmark:
http://www.slaegtogdata.dk/forum/index.php/board,3.0.html

Websites on which to search for graves in Denmark:

http://www.findengrav.dk/

http://www.dk-gravsten.dk

http://www.gravstensarkivet.dk

My understanding is that graves must be maintained (financially supported) after a certain number of years have passed; otherwise, the site is reused.

A good starting point for Danish genealogy generally:
