Next to him on the turf 5 small concrete steles. Two of them have small cast-iron Austrian crosses and tin signs with the names of Austrian soldiers, three similar tablets and Russian crosses (two-armed). The cemetery is renovated and nurtured. All plates are on the south-western side of the crosses. Outside the cemetery, there is an information sign next to its fence. The description given on it shows that originally the cemetery was turned in a different direction, towards the old road. After ceasing its use, the stelae and the cross were turned towards the new cemetery avenue. The renovation of the cemetery was carried out in 2012 by the Commune Office in Łososina Dolna with the help of funds from the Małopolska Provincial Office in Krakow. Two Austrian soldiers known by their surnames (they are placed on the tablets), three out of four unidentified Russian soldiers (inscriptions on their tablets: 2 Russiche Krieger, 1 Russiche Krieger) were buried in the cemetery. .
