It's not clear why 21 Polish soldiers, who died at Axel in the Netherlands, were taken to the Canadian War Cemetery at Adegem in Belgium, whilst the other Polish victims were buried in the town of Axel.
Except the above mentioned victims more wounded Polish soldiers died in several hospitals, for instance at Sint Niklaas and Gent in Belgium. Nowadays these 18 victims lie buried in the Polish War Cemetery at Lommel, Belgium.
