A service of remembrance for Poland's war heroes will be once again held at Newark Cemetery Chapel Interpretation Centre on Sunday afternoon 3pm on 6th May 2012. The public are most welcome to attend. The service, organised by the Order of Saint Stanislas, also marks the saint's day of St Stanislas, the patron Saint of Poland. The Order of Saint Stanislas is one of the historic orders of chivalry and was founded by the last native King of Poland, Stanislas Augustus Poniatowski on St Stanislas' Day in 1765.

The Order's Chaplain, The Revd Dr Graham St John-Willey, will lead the service. We are hoping Father Michael O'Donoghue from Holy Trinity RC Church Newark will also present again.

During the 2nd World War there were nearly a quarter of a million Polish Armed Forces serving under British command. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission cares for the graves of nearly 4,500 Polish serviceman and women in 35 countries around the world.

There were a number of Royal Air Force stations within and around Newark from which several Polish squadrons operated. The highest concentration of commemorations can be particularly found in Newark-On-Trent, Nottinghamshire. Our local cemetery has nearly 400 who died and they are buried in a special plot on the east side.

The United Kingdom, has over 2,100 Polish war dead commemorated in 244 different locations as our lasting tribute to their heroism, bravery, valour and determination for freedom - lest we forget.

Let's remember them by a paying tribute to them and for their contribution during the 2nd World War at this annual service in Newark Cemetery.

"Loved In Life, Honoured In Death, Cherished In Our Memory, Amen"
