It contains the graves of eleven Polish soldiers, three of whom served with UK forces, four with the Polish Army and four who died after the war awaiting repatriation.

The Polish graves are in a row at the bottom of the cemetery. It makes it look like a corner of a CWGC cemetery





The wooden cross has the Polish eagle on it.
