Orthodox cemetery in Szczytle-Dzięciołowie - a historic Orthodox necropolis in Szczytle-Dzięciołowie. The cemetery was marked out and created before the parish church was founded, which is located within it. This would mean that it was built in the eighteenth century at the latest. According to B. Rudkowski's research, the oldest tombstone preserved in its area dates back to 1800 and is located on the burial site of a woman named Jelena. The conservation record indicates that the oldest dated gravestone comes from 1878. A group of tombstones from the second half of the 19th century survived within the necropolis. XIX century and beginning of the 19th century 20th century They are stone monuments, with forged steel crosses. In 1986, there were also seven wooden crosses of historic value in the cemetery, including one with the date 1889 . Gravestones of the deceased from the Wiewiórowski family, the owners of the manor in Szczytach, have survived at the cemetery who in 1864 converted to Orthodoxy. In the immediate vicinity of the church, parish priests of Chlopów parish were buried. There are family graves of Goworski, Kulczycki and Czystowski, as well as several tombstones, where the original inscriptions are no longer legible. Near the temple there are also preserved votive crosses, the oldest of which were funded in 1873 by two peasants from Krzywa. Lime grows within the cemetery; some of them have the status of a natural monument . [source: Wikipedia, 3327671]
