The cemetery is on the projection of a large rectangle surrounded by a stone and wooden fence. In the middle there is a stone monument, which is a characteristic feature of this cemetery, in the form of five columns on a common square pedestal with capitals with floral motifs. The object occupies a large plot in the parish cemetery. It is preserved in very good condition and well-groomed. Its area is 1650 m. There are 157 single graves and 27 mass graves. A very rare case in cemeteries from this period is the knowledge of the names and the regimental affiliation of Russian soldiers. At the cemetery in Żmigród, 149 tomb-buried soldiers, there are known names of about 50. Among the graves, there is the grave of Captain Franz Dobnik with a sandstone slab.

Interesting facts
At the cemetery, a Polish recruit, Jan Drozdowicz from 16 pp., Was also buried on the 11th February 1920. The grave of Maria Skołuda, shot in 1945, is also here. Apparently, the Austrian soldier, who managed the artillery from the church tower, rests here. He was spotted by a patrol of boots and dropped on the pavement under the tower. Another message says that Captain Dobnik, who was buried in the cemetery, was shot by his own soldier, when he dressed in a sheet pretending to be a ghost, wanting to check the guard's vigilance.
