I am new to the forum and would very much appreciate help in getting photos of this war cemetery and of the headstone belonging to the man named below. If anyone is close to the cemetery or would be going near there soon, I would love to hear from you.
This man probably died in a camp as a prisoner of war.
Malbork (formerly Marienburg) is a town on the River Nogat located in the north of Poland to the south-east of the city of Gdansk (Danzig), on the main road 50, and the cemetery is located to the west of the town.
BUTLER, ALBERT STANLEY Guardsman 2719731, 2nd Bn., Irish Guards died age 24 on 10 May 1942
Remembered with honour MALBORK COMMONWEALTH WAR CEMETERY
Grave/Memorial Reference: 7. B. 11.
I assume that you have been to the CWGC website. They have a picture of the graves, but if you blow up the picture there doesn't appear to be any names.
Of course the name could be on the rear. I don't know.
The CWGC site might have more pictures, but I didn't search.
Have you tried other websites ?
One or two Genealogy websites might have links to photos. Try: Rootschat.
Also, there are one or two good WW1, WW2 websites that might be able to help.
You might be able to find the actual grave in the CWGC photo, if you can find a plan of the cemetery.
Thanks for you reply and for your suggestions,
The cemetery plan and photo can be found on the cwgc site by searching for Malbork under the cemetery box.
Unfortunately enlarging a photo from this site would not produce the results I need and they would not have another photo up on the site other than the one posted.
I have tried a WW2 website, but was also hoping that some kind person who is actually in Poland, going to Poland or from Poland could help me ...
"Here is information on the location of the cemetery:
Malbork (formerly Marienburg) is a town on the River Nogat located in the north of Poland to the south-east of the city of Gdansk (Danzig), on the main road 50, and the cemetery is located to the west of the town. Follow the main road 50 through the town to the junction with the 514 to Gradziadz. Turn left here into Plac Slowianski. The cemetery is along here on the left, on the outskirts of the town."
I am interested in this man's grave in particular, because I have family connections with both the Irish Guards and with Gdansk where my grandmother's family was from.
Thank you, I have now been helped to find a photo of this man's grave.
