Cemetery notes and/or description:
The old Lemko cemetery associated with the former Greek Catholic church of Świety Dymitry (Saint Demetrius) is located in the village of Leluchow, in Muszyna administrative district, Nowosądecki county, Malopolskie voivodeship, Poland.
The parish itself was founded in 1738 and the original church was built in 1780. In 1861 the church building was moved to a new location, perhaps to Slovakia, and a new building was erected near the site of the former church.
The graveyard was used by parishoners as a burying ground from the eighteenth century until just after WWII when the Rusyn population was forcibly removed from the area and scattered to other regions of Poland as a result of "Operacija Wistula," an act of ethnic cleansing.
The Lemko cemetery is located on the hill to the left of the front entrance of the old wooden church.
Records of burials date from late 1784
