I have been walking around Newark cemetery for many years. In 2005 we set up The Friends Of Newark Cemetery, I have been Chairman since 2010.  Many kind words which I really enjoy and appreciate from people that have contacted me. It has intrigues me, something that makes me want to look into who is buried and history going back to 1856, which has been fascinating.

Friends of Newark Cemetery would like more volunteers to help with events in 2016. We would welcome interested people and groups at our public meetings.  This will be held on Wednesday 20th January 2016, 2pm at Town Hall Newark in the Pickin room.

They will welcome groups and visitors for events for an exhibition – display during
May – October 2016 for Schools and other groups by appointment.

  • Tours of the 49 graves at Newark Cemetery

  • Cemetery War Memorial to the Fallen (Main Gate London Road)

We want to make this a memorable and successful event, it will mark the 100th anniversary of the declaration of the 1st World War which started on 4th August 1914.

We must not forget the Commonwealth, Polish Airman and Service men they fought for freedom against the enemy and didn’t flinch. They fought to the end and then carried on the fight, we should be grateful also to the workers at Ransome and Marles. We certainly owe them a great deal of credit that they so rightly deserve.

Newark Cemetery British Commonwealth And Polish War Graves

General Wladyslaw Sikorski was one of the great Polish heroes, Newark Cemetery commemorated our wartime links with Poland. After the German invasion of Poland, he became the Prime Minister of a new Polish Government in exile, and also Commander in Chief of the Polish Armed Forces, which fought with the Allies by land, sea and air throughout the Second World War.  He was thus Political, military and resistance leader, during the  2nd world war.The Polish fighting for survival for a free nation and  liberation from the terrible oppression to which they had become subject for too long. It is little wonder then that General Sikorski was so loved and respected by his people, and that they continue to revere and honour his memory to the present day. As British Prime Minister, Winston Churchill said in his tribute to General Sikorski in the House of Commons, ‘he was truly the symbol and embodiment of that spirit which has borne the Polish nation through the centuries.’ General Sikorski was also very active in World politics at that time, attending many political conferences with the allies and was, indeed, one of the Architects of the United Nations. Churchill described his death as ‘a most grievous loss to the cause of the United Nations.’ And so it was as Commander in Chief of the Free Polish Forces that General Sikorski left England on 24th May 1943 onboard an RAF Liberator Aircraft bound for Cairo to visit Polish Troops fighting with the Allies in North Africa. On his return from Cairo, his Liberator aircraft touched down at Gibraltar, just as it had done on the way out to Cairo. General Sikorski was accompanied by his daughter Zofia, who was also Chief of the Polish Womens Auxiliary. The Party also included the Polish military Chief  of Staff, Operations. They arrived at Gibraltar on Saturday 3rd July at 6.37pm. Their aircraft, the same Liberator, took off from Gibraltar airport at 11pm  Sunday 4th July 1943 on the final leg of General Sikorski was returning his journey from Cairo to London. The aeroplane crashed seconds after take-off,  just off the eastern end of the runway. General Sikorski, his daughter and all his party perished. General Sikorski’s body lay in State for several days at the Cathedral of St Mary the Crowned on Main Street, until a Polish warship could reach Gibraltar to take it to the UK for burial. On arrival at the Cathedral entrance the street was crowded with Gibraltarian men (their wives, children and parents had been evacuated from Gibraltar during the war) who wanted to show their respect to this courageous Polish hero. The then Bishop of Gibraltar celebrated a requiem mass in the Cathedral before the mortal remains of General Sikorski and his party were transferred to the Polish destroyer ‘Orkan’. General Sikorski was buried in Newark Cemetery in England on 16th July 1943. To the present day his grave became a shrine to free Poles throughout the world.  Their view was that the General’s remains should never be returned to Poland while the country was under foreign domination. It was therefore not until the fall of the Berlin Wall and the liberation of Eastern Europe from Soviet domination. On this date Monday 13th September 1993, his remains were disinterred from Newark cemetery and  taken Newark Parish Church of St Mary Magadalene stayed over night the next day had a farewell Catholic Mass. After the service  was flown home to Warsaw to be re-interred in a special crypt in Wawel Cathedral which lies inside the walls of the ancient castle, traditional burial place of Polish Kings.

Newark-On-Trent is also important internationally, as it contains the Commonwealth and Polish War Graves

The cemetery also contains 49 scattered burials of the First World War. A memorial cross to the Polish airmen buried here was erected in the plot and was unveiled in 1941 by President Raczkiewicz, ex-President of the Polish Republic and head of the war time Polish Government in London, supported by General Sikorski, Commander-in-Chief of the Polish Forces and war time Polish Prime Minister. When both men subsequently died, General Sikorski in 1943 and President Raczkiewicz in 1947, they were buried at the foot of the Polish Memorial. General Sikorski’s remains were returned to Poland in 1993, but there is still a memorial to him at Newark.
