On one side of the church, there is an orthodox cross which marks the location of the Romanovs' deaths. Even during the Soviet Era, there were crosses in that area but it changed over time. Different crosses were replaced by a new one as the years went by. A small wooden structure was eventually built behind the cross and stands near the church.
Prince Nicholas then wrote to all the Romanovs who had been in communication with his father and it was agreed that a Family Association should be created. In 1979 the Romanov Family Association was officially formed with Prince Dmitri Alexandrovich as president and Prince Nicholas Romanovich as vice president.
