British war cemetery in Sage
British war cemetery in Sage

In front of the entrance on the opposite side of the cemetery, under a roofing, there are two plaques with English and German texts:

 

THE AREA OF THIS CEMETERY WAS DESIGNATED BY THE GERMAN SOCIETY AS A PLACE OF HONOUR AND ETERNAL REST FOR SEAMEN, SOLDIERS AND AIRMEN KILLED DURING THE WAR

[translated from Polish]

 

Behind a metal door with a cross, there is a recess with a commemorative book, where you can record your visit and make comments. There is also a description in English with a plan of the cemetery and an alphabetical list of British soldiers buried here. The cemetery is under the care of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission and German local authorities.

The alphabetical list of Polish citizens buried at the English military cemetery in Sage contains the Polish equivalent of the military rank, surname and first name, type of unit, service number, military affiliation, date of death, age and location of the grave at the cemetery (the original form and spelling of the English list of the deceased, which is available at the cemetery, has been preserved):
