The present article is the result of academic cataloguing of 1831 and 1863 veterans’ tomb in the RakowiceCemetery in Krakow. The tomb was founded in 1883 by the Society for the Support of the Veterans of 1831 [Towarzystwo Opiekinad Weteranami 1831 roku]. The first part is an attempt to present the tomb’s history and the origins of the construction, with reference to the later extension and the unfulfilled plan, from the late 1930s, to build a new monumental tomb. The description is based on the acts of the National Archive in Krakow [Archiwum Narodowe w Krakowie] and on the 19th century Krakow press releases. The work also attempts to establish the number of the veterans who are buried in the tomb, because the memorial plaques which are preserved until the present day do not include all of the buried names. Some of the plaques’ inscriptions present distorted personal data: misspelled names, wrong dates of birth or death. It was possible to clarify these data on the basis of the acts located in the Municipal Cemetery Administration’s Archives of the Rakowice Cemetery in Krakow [Archiwum Zarządu Cmentarzy Komunalnych w Krakowie na Rakowicach]. An appendix which presents a list of 139 names of the veterans buried there and an inventory description of the 56 memorial plaques built into the walls of the tomb constitutes the second part of the article. The inventory provides the plaques’ sizes and the epigraphic edition of the epitaphic transcriptions. The data gathered may augment both biographical research on the lives of the participants of the Polish national uprisings living in the 19th century Krakow, as well as on the issue of cultivating the tradition of independence.
