In researching my 18th and 19th century Herschel of Hamburg ancestors
I came across a book Memor-Buch die judischen Friedhofe in Wandsbek,
by Naftali Bar-Giora Bamberger with pictures of the gravestones at
Wandsbek. In that book there are footnotes discussing the inscriptions
on the gravestones. Some of the footnotes make reference to the
"Kabronim Buch," sometimes abbreviated K. B.

Can anyone tell me what the Kabronim Buch was?

"Kabronim" is the Ashkenazi pronunciation of the Hebrew word "Kabranim".
A "kabran" is a gravedigger. The "Kabronim Buch" is the "Gravediggers' book" -
most probably, the register in which graves were registered.
