Hello,
I'm from Belgrade, Serbia, and i'm looking for my grandfathers grave who fought and died during WW1 somewhere in Romania. He was fighting in Austria-Hungarian army, and from what i could find, he died and was buried in 1915 in Nagyvárad, and from what i found on the internet that town is called Oradea today. Also i was informed that on his tomb stone there's his name: Zarko Milosavljevic. If anyone knows the location of such cemetery in Oradea, please reply here. Also any additional information which might help me in search will be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance,

Petar Milosavljevic

I'm not able to help with your request, but I found in the ”K.u.k. Armee Verlustliste” published by the National Library of the Czech Republic (http://kramerius.nkp.cz), a soldier named: „Milosavljevic Mihajlo, ResKorp., k. u. LIR. Nr. 28, 9. Komp., Slavonien, Ruma, 1881, tot (19.-27./10.1914).” which means he was born in Ruma, Slavonien in 1881, served in LIR. Nr. 28, 9. Komp., and died somewhere between 19 and 27 November 1914. Information was published in Item from: 4.2.1915 Periodical Item Number: 120, Page Number: 29.

Dear Colleague,
You have tried to write in management of Oradea city cemeteries. Maybe one of the local officials comply with your request and respond.

References in Romanian
Administrarea de cimitirele orașului Oradea or Departamentul militari cimitirul‎ ...

I'm sorry, but I can not English & Romanian, so use an electronic translator. I hope that my message was clear.

Hello. I live in Oradea.
Here is a Google Maps link with the local Cemetery. It is kalled The Rulikowski Cemetery.
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Universit...bebd38a70e7e566


I was in the cemetery recently and saw an area of the Soviet WWII heroes. I dind'nt look expecially for the WWI heroes. If you want , i can go there one day to look for your guy.
For me living here it's piece of cake.

But i have to warn you. In the latest 30 years ,many graves (if not all) of the WWI were lost without trace.
BAck in the late 90's there was another cemetery in Oradea ,called Olosig. It was an abandoned cemetery, full, and not used any more. Near the years 95-2000 it was removed and instead it was built a park. It was a public call then , who had dead people burried inside, they could move them to the Rulikowski cemetery. Many people dind't show up, so forgotten and abandoned tombs were removed with the buldozers. Some tomb stones made of marble wich were attractive were kept in a monument ,near the catholic Church in the park, but most of them were damaged/profanated ,and basically destroyed. All the bones found in the Olosig cemetery during the building of tha actual park were put toghether and carried in the Rulikowski Cemetery and kept for years in a room. A year ago, someone's bulb light up ,and they made a common grave ,and a religious office in the memory of those people (unknown; they don't have a list ).

Here's an article. Try to google translate it in your language:

The location of the old Olosig cemetery is here:
https://www.google.com/maps/place/Parcul+Ol...13ca0586118f1a3




Anyway, i can try my luck and go to Rulikowski and ask.
Please answer me .
