Krakow Rakowicki Cemetery in Poland
Krakow is a large city in the south of Poland about 257 kilometres south-west of Warsaw. Krakow Rakowicki Cemetery, a large Military Cemetery which contains Polish, Russian and German graves as well as Commonwealth graves, is located east of the city. The Commonwealth War Graves Plot is located through the entrance and to the left of the cemetery in the north-eastern corner of the burial ground. At the end of the Second World War, the graves service of the British Army of the Rhine gathered together Commonwealth graves from all over Poland into three cemeteries, Krakow Rakowicki Cemetery being the largest. There are now 483 Commonwealth casualties of the Second World War buried or commemorated in Krakow Rakowicki Cemetery.
