Historical Information

Slobozia Military Cemetery was made in 1920 by the Romanian Government for the reburial of those Indian soldiers, captured by the Germans and sent to work in Romania, who died in captivity. The majority, mainly Gurkhas, died at Morile and Marculesci, to the east of Slobozia.

The cemetery contains 83 Commonwealth burials of the First World War, eight of them unidentified.
