Malbork (formerly Marienburg) is a town on the River Nogat, lying south-east of Gdansk (Danzig). The Malbork Commonwealth War Cemetery will be found on the outskirts of Malbork and contains Commonwealth war graves of both world wars. The graves lie in mown grass plots and have headstones of Portland stone. The Cross of Sacrifice is also of Portland stone and stands high above the headstones on a podium of local stone, its bronze Crusader's sword facing the graves. Along the rows of headstones are continuous borders wherein flowers of various kinds give colour in their seasons.
