Burial Information

Grave Reference:

Coll. grave 1. A. 8.

Location:

Krakow is a large city in the south of Poland about 257 kilometres south-west of Warsaw on the main road 4. Krakow Rakowicki Cemetery, a large Military Cemetery which contains Polish, Russian and German graves as well as Commonwealth graves, is located east of the city. Follow the road 4 into the city and continue to the T junction at the end of the road 4. At this junction turn left along the road 7 (Al J Slowackiego) and follow this road round the town, then round a left hand bend and under the railway bridge where the road name changes to Al 29 Listopada. Take the first turning on the right after the bridge, called Prandoty, and the cemetery will be found along here on the left. The Commonwealth War Graves Plot is located through the entrance and to the left of the cemetery in the north-eastern corner of the burial ground.
