Sutton-on-the-Forest Cemetery


About two miles from were East Moor camp was situated is the pretty little village of Sutton-on-the-Forest with a church and cemetery. There are about 50 Polish headstones in the cemetery of people who once lived in East Moor Polish Hostel. Some are still well looked after but sadly others are forgotten, illegible and a handful are hidden in deep undergrowth. Let us not forget that these people were driven out of their country through WW2 and came to England looking for sanctuary.
