This stone commemorates the men buried in Dalziel (Globe) Cemetery. This cemetery is now closed and practically abandoned. Probably the only people who visit now are dog walkers and neds.

Dalziel (Old Manse Road) churchyard is still in existance, so I'm a little unsure as to why this memorial is here rather than in the original burial place.

I am told that that road was widened at the churchyard and some graves were lost at the time - this may include these two.

This is the second of the two Polish graves. When I took this photograph, I noticed the flat stone in front:



which when turned over, revealed some more information, including the mans first name:





Can anyone out there translate Polish? I'm interested to know what the words at the bottom of the small stone mean.
