Description of the cemetery
It was designed by the Polish architect Jan Szczepkowski as a separate plot in the parish cemetery. It is located on a slightly sloping slope and has the shape of an asymmetrical parallelogram. Three sides of the cemetery are fenced with a low stone wall covered with a concrete roof. The fourth side of the road has a fence in the form of concrete pillars connected with metal chains. This type of solution with chains does not occur on any of the cemeteries of the 4th district of Łuşna. In this side there is an entrance to the cemetery. The main decorative element is the monument in the form of a stone gate-altar located in the wall opposite the entrance. It is crowned with a small Latin cross, on the front wall from the side of the cemetery there is a bas-relief of Christ's head with a crown of thorns and two name plates, and a wooden cross on the outer wall. Graves spread in four parallel rows. Tombstones in the form of low concrete plinths with metal crosses. In the lower part of the crosses there are metal frames for plates with the names of fallen soldiers, but there are no plates. In addition to single plinths, there are triple plinths with three crosses (so-called triads). [source: Wikipedia, 2434293]
