Brodnowski Cemetery on the east side of the Vistula is actually bigger than Powazki though not as old. It has significantly fewer trees too. What it does have is an original 19th century wooden church (St. Vincent de Paul), and some enormous monuments to Katyn and other WWII graves. The ritualistic Day of the Dead on 1st November is quite a squeeze. So much so that last year when I made the trip I thought I might be staying longer than I had intended!
