Commonwealth War Graves Poznan

After the First World War, the graves of Commonwealth servicemen who had died in Poland as prisoners of war were gathered together in this garrison cemetery. There are now 174 Commonwealth servicemen of the First World War buried or commemorated in the cemetery. One of the burials is unidentified. Special memorials commemorate 48 casualties whose graves could not be identified.

The majority of the 283 Second World War burials in the cemetery are those of airmen, many of whom died in bombing operations. Also buried here are those involved in the mass escape from Stalag Luft 3 in March 1944 and others who died while prisoners of war during the German occupation. There are also 19 war graves of other nationalities in the cemetery, most of them Polish.
