All Souls Day Prayers
The Polish Community Met on Sunday 4th November to hold prayers & honour those buried in the Brookwood Military Cemetery UK

On or around 2nd November each year many Christians remember and pray for deceased family and friends and this may include visiting their graves. Together with All Saints Day many Christian communities celebrate Hallowtide and on this the closest Sunday to those days the Polish Community gathered at the Polish Sections of the CWGC Brookwood Military Cemetery, UK. There are two plots of Polish graves both of which were visited. See an interactive map here. The main ceremony was held at the Polish Memorial with graves in both sections then blessed.
