Nowofarny Cemetery


The cemetery was founded in 1905 as the second parish cemetery. The initiator of its creation was the priest Ryszard Markwart, as well as Władysław Gogoliński, who was the author of the assumptions of "green architecture". It was founded on a rectangular plan, with an internal division into 26 plots. A funeral chapel was located in the center, surrounded by circular and perpendicular avenues in a star-shaped system.


Until the next parish and Catholic cemeteries were established in the 1920s, the Nowofarny cemetery was the main municipal cemetery for Catholics. In its center were the graves of soldiers killed during World War I (1914–1918), graves of Greater Poland insurgents and graves of soldiers killed in the Polish-Bolshevik war of 1920.
