The Hebrew reads as follows: "Chevre Rabeynu Nahum Anshei Grodno"

Another translation would be: The Society/Association of our Rabbi Nahum the People of Grodno". This probably implies that this society or organization of people from Grodno dedicated a section in the cemetery.

Sometimes Hebrew words have many translation possibities in English, so this gives you a broader picture....Jo
