The Polish cemetery at the Abby of Mt Monte Cassino. Italy.
Interned are the bodies of 1000 Polish Soldiers killed while attacking the Monastery ruins at Monte Cassino .

Although General Anders survived the war.. He requested to be interned with his troops.

Merged: Monte Cassino Records / Cemetary

Dzien Dobry,

My grandfathers brother died at Monte Cassino serving the 2nd Polish Corps. Does anyone know a place online I can find a list of some people that died. If there is a record. I am looking into this for my grandmother.

To start you off.

Wikipedia: Polish cemetery at Monte Cassino

Google: monte cassino polish war memorials

or at least a combination of those words.

"the memorial of the third Carpathian Division, which sits overlooking the monastery and the Polish War Cemetery, on the North Ridge'' (from a BBC website)

If he was from the Nowogrodek area, then this link will show all the soldiers buried in different cemeteries, inluding Monte Cassino.

It lists each Powiat, then the soldiers from each Powiat.

I had a link to a webpage which had all the soldiers names that were buried at Monte Cassino, but the link no longer works...I couldn't find any other sites searching google

I just found the following webpages. The first is a list of Polish soldiers buried at Monte Cassino.

The second link is the main webpage of the Polish Cemetery at Monte Cassino. It's in Polish.

The 3rd link has the soldiers grave photos. They're grouped in sections. You can use the info from the first link...(what section the soldier is buried in) then find that section on the 3rd links webpage. ie-mogiy.html
