Commemoration held for Polish servicemen who fought in World War Two and are buried in abandoned cemetery
A ceremony has been held to remember 34 Polish servicemen who fought for Britain against the Nazis in World War Two and are buried in an derelict cemetery.
The event was organised by Epsom Court ward councillor Sheila Carlson, who has been highlighting the scandalous condition of Horton Cemetery, off Hook Road, Epsom, for a number of years.
The site was sold off by the regional health authority to private developer Marque Securities in 1983 with no conditions placed on its maintenance.
