    FOIANO DELLA CHIANA WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may visited anytime. Wheelchair access possible via main entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on telephone number 01628 507200.
    • Location Information: Foiano Della Chiana lies 31 kilometres south of Arezzo. Take the Highway A1 and exit at the Val di Chiana-Betolle exit. From Foiano della Chiana carry on in the direction of Arezzo. On this road the Commission's sign to the right can be seen. The cemetery lies among the fields about 50 metres down a lane. Cemetery address: Via Porto - 52045 Foiano della Chiana (AR) Tuscany. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 43.261984, Longitude: 11.821956.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Progress through southern Italy was rapid despite stiff resistance, but the advance was checked for some months at the German winter defensive position known as the Gustav Line. The line eventually fell in May 1944 and as the Germans withdrew, Rome was taken by the Allies on 3 June. Early in July there was heavy fighting in the Chiana valley where the Germans made their last stand in front of Arezzo and the Arno. The cemetery is a battlefield cemetery originally formed by the 4th Division and later increased when graves were brought in from the surrounding area. Most of the burials in the cemetery date from the first two weeks of July 1944. Foiano della Chiana War Cemetery contains 256 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War.

    FORLI WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime. Wheelchair access to the cemetery is possible, but may be by alternative entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on telephone number 01628 507200.
    • Location Information: The War Cemetery is located on the outskirts of Forli, about 3 kilometres South-West of the town, in the locality of Vecchiazzano, Via Borghina. From the SS9 to the west of the town, take the SS67 to Florence. After 3-4 km there is a signpost pointing left to Vecchiazzano. If travelling by train, the nearest station is Forli, from which a taxi can be taken. Cemetery address: Via Borghina 1P, 47121 Forli. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 44.205164, Longitude: 12.014418.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Following the fall of Rome to the Allies in June 1944, the German retreat became ordered and successive stands were made on a series of defensive lines. In the northern Appenine mountains the last of these, the Gothic Line, was breached by the Allies during the Autumn campaign and the front inched forward as far as Ravenna in the Adratic sector, but with divisions transferred to support the new offensive in France, and the Germans dug in to a number of key defensive positions, the advance stalled as winter set in. The cemetery site was selected soon after the Eighth Army took Forli in November 1944 and graves were brought into it from the surrounding battlefields. Many of those buried there lost their lives in the heavy fighting between Rimini and Ravenna which took place in appalling weather in October-December 1944. Forli War Cemetery contains 738 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 4 of which are unidentifed.

    MILAN WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime. Wheelchair access to the cemetery is possible via the main entrance.
    • Location Information: Take the tangenziale west, skirting Milan, from the autostradas A1, A4 or A7. Exit from the tangenziale (main road) following the blue signs for Milano, route SS11. Proceed in the direction of Milano and pass the Grand Hotel Brun. Take the sharp turn to the left following the CWGC signs. The cemetery lies in a large park approximately 0.5 kilometre along on the right. From the city centre head west following signs for the San Siro football Stadium. The road which runs past the stadium has local authority signs for Milan War Cemetery. If travelling by train, the nearest station is Forli, where a taxi service is available. Cemetery address: Via Cascina Bellaria s.n. - 20153 Milano (MI) Lombardia. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 45.48509, Longitude: 9.10420.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. The Allied advance was stalled for two successive winters: in 1943 on the German defensive position known as the Gustav Line, stretching from the river Gargliano in the west to the Sangro in the east, and in 1944 on the Gothic Line in the northern Appenine mountains. At the beginning of April 1945, the Allies launched their final offensive against the German positions spread out in a line across Italy, south of Bologna. German resistance was by now beginning to disintegrate and the Allies were able to fan out rapidly across the Po valley. Milan, already freed by Italian Partisans, was entered by the US 4th Corps on 2 May 1945, the day of the German surrender in Italy. As Milan fell to the Allies largely without a fight, the Commonwealth forces suffered few casualties. Most of the graves in Milan War Cemetery were those of prisoners-of-war or airmen and were brought in from the surrounding towns and villages - places such as Bergamo, Boves, Carpi, Cicagna, Modena, Parma, Piacenza, Turin and Val d'Isere - after the war. Milan War Cemetery contains 417 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 27 of them unidentified. There are also six war graves of other nationalities.

    MINTURNO WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime. Wheelchair access to site possible, but may be by alternative entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on telephone number 01628 507200.
    • Location Information: Minturno is about 78 kilometres north of Naples, close to the coast. The cemetery lies several kilometres south of the town on the SS7 road to Naples and is situated in the locality of Marina di Minturno (Garigliano). To reach the cemetery take the Cassino exit from the A1 motorway, then turn right to follow Ausonia, Formia, Minturno. At about 30 km the road runs tangientially to a flyover. Go under the flyover, turn left and take the SS7 Appia road towards Scauri and Naples. Go over Scauri and then, after 4 kilometres, to Marina di Minturno and the cemetery is a further 3 kilometres, on the right hand side. Cemetery address: Via Virilassi, 1 - 4020 Marina di Minturno (LT) Lazio. GPS Co-ordinates: Main entrance to cemetery; Latitude: 41.243006, Longitude: 13.766556 Back entrance gate to cemetery; Latitude: 41.240844, Longitude: 13.765905.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Allied objectives were to draw German troops from the Russian front and more particularly from France, where an offensive was planned for the following year. Progress through southern Italy was rapid despite stiff resistance, but by the end of October, the Allies were facing the German winter defensive position known as the Gustav Line, which stretched from the river Garigliano in the west to the Sangro in the east. Initial attempts to breach the western end of the line were unsuccessful and it was not until 17 January 1944 that the Garigliano was crossed, and Minturno taken two days later. The site for the cemetery was chosen in January 1944, but the Allies then lost some ground and the site came under German small-arms fire. The cemetery could not be used again until May 1944 when the Allies launched their final advance on Rome and the US 85th and 88th Divisions were in this sector. The burials are mainly those of the heavy casualties incurred in crossing the Garigliano in January. Minturno War Cemetery contains 2,049 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War. The cemetery was designed by Louis de Soissons.

    MORO RIVER CANADIAN WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime. Wheelchair access to the cemetery is possible, but may be by alternative entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on telephone number 01628 507200.
    • Location Information: The Moro River Canadian War Cemetery lies in the locality of San Donato in the Commune of Ortona, Province of Chieti, and is sited on high ground near the sea just east of the main Adriatic coast road (SS16). The cemetery can be reached from Rome on the autostrada A25 (Rome-Pescara) by branching on the autostrada A14 and leaving it at Ortona. The approach road to the cemetery from the main road passes under an arch forming part of the little church of San Donato. Cemetery address: Contrada San Donato - 66028 Ortona Porto (CH) Abruzzo. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 42.336403, Longitude: 14.416677.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Allied objectives were to draw German troops from the Russian front and more particularly from France, where an offensive was planned for the following year. Progress through southern Italy was rapid despite stiff resistance, but by the end of October, the Allies were facing the German winter defensive position known as the Gustav Line, which stretched from the river Garigliano in the west to the Sangro in the east. The Allied force that had fought its way up the Adriatic took the Sangro river positions by 30 November. The 1st Canadian Division went on to cross the Moro river on 6 December against stiff opposition, and to take Ortona on the 28th, after a week of bitter street fighting. The 2nd New Zealand division made some advances further inland but thereafter, there was virtually no movement east of the Appennines until after the fall of Rome. The site of the cemetery was chosen by the Canadian Corps in January 1944. It contains the graves of those who died during that fighting at Moro river and Ortona, and during the weeks that preceded and followed it. In December 1943 alone, the 1st Canadian Division suffered over 500 fatal battle casualties. Burials other than those of members of the Canadian forces are almost all in plots 12, 13 and 16. Moro River Canadian War Cemetery contains 1,615 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War.

    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Allied objectives were to draw German troops from the Russian front and more particularly from France, where an offensive was planned for the following year. The 65th and 92nd General Hospitals were in Naples from late in 1943 until the end of the war, also the 67th General Hospital for the greater part of that time. The site for the war cemetery was chosen in November 1943 and burials were made in it from the hospitals and garrison. Later graves were brought in from a number of small cemeteries in the immediate vicinity. Naples War Cemetery contains 1,202 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War. There are also some non war burials and war graves of other nationalities.

    PADUA WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime. Wheelchair access possible via main entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on telephone number 01628 507200.
    • Location Information: Take the autostrada A13 exiting at Padua South, then head north to Vicenza to the SS11. Alternatively, take the autostrada A4, exiting at Padua West, then head South to the SS11, then west to Vicenza. The SS11 in Padua is the Via Chiesanuova from which, at about 2 kilometres from the town centre, a right turn is made onto the Via della Biscia. Follow this until the cemetery is reached on the right. Cemetery address: Via della Biscia 126 - 35136 Padova (PD) Veneto. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 45.421618, Longitude: 11.839925.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. The Allied advance was stalled for two successive winters: in 1943 on the German defensive position known as the Gustav Line, stretching from the river Gargliano in the west to the Sangro in the east, and in 1944 on the Gothic Line in the northern Appenine mountains. At the beginning of April 1945, the Allies launched their final offensive against the German positions spread out in a line across Italy, south of Bologna. German resistance was by now beginning to disintegrate and the Allies were able to fan out rapidly across the Po valley. Padua War Cemetery lies in the zone of the Allied breakthrough in the spring of 1945 when, despite some resistance, the town was captured by Indian troops. The cemetery contains 513 commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 32 of them unidentified. There are also four war graves of other nationalities and one non-war burial.

    RAVENNA WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime. Wheelchair access to the cemetery is possible via the main entrance.
    • Location Information: The War Cemetery lies on a communal road 1 kilometre south of the SS16 from Ravenna to Ferrara near the village of Piangipane in the Commune and Province of Ravenna. The turning from the main road is at the 143 kilometres stone, 12 kilometres west of Ravenna. The turning is marked with a CWGC sign pointing in the direction of the cemetery, and a road sign marked 'Piangipane 4 kilometres'. Continue along the minor road until a further CWGC sign is seen. The entrance to the cemetery is located on the left hand side of the road. The nearest train station to the cemetery is Mezzano but there is no taxi service available from there. There is however, a taxi service from Ravenna train station. Cemetery address: Via Piangipane 24B - 48100 Piangipane (RA) Emilia Romagna. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 44.441525, Longitude: 12.107673.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Following the fall of Rome to the Allies in June 1944, the German retreat became ordered and successive stands were made on a series of defensive lines. In the northern Appenine mountains the last of these, the Gothic Line, was breached by the Allies during the Autumn campaign and the front inched forward as far as Ravenna in the Adratic sector, but with divisions transferred to support the new offensive in France, and the Germans dug in to a number of key defensive positions, the advance stalled as winter set in. Ravenna was taken by the Canadian Corps at the beginning of December 1944, and the burials in the cemetery there reflect the fighting for the Senio line and the period of relative quiet during the first three months of 1945. Many of the men buried there were Canadians; one of the last tasks of the Canadian Corps before being moved to north-west Europe was the clearing of the area between Ravenna and the Comacchio lagoon. Others are Indians from the 10th Indian Division, and New Zealanders. The site for the cemetery was selected by the Army in 1945 for burials from the surrounding battlefields. Ravenna War Cemetery contains 955 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 63 of them unidentified. There are also 33 First World War burials, 30 of them brought in from Gradisca Communal Cemetery in 1973, the others from communal cemeteries at Arzigano, Fano and Monterosso al Mare. Among those buried in the cemetery are 33 men of the Jewish Infantry Brigade Group which was formed in September 1944, chiefly by volunteers from Palestine; the burials at Ravenna form the largest concentration of casualties from the Brigade. There is 1 Merchant Seaman whose death is not attributable to war service and 1 French burial.

    ROME WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: Due to frequent vandalism and thefts, it is now necessary to keep the cemetery padlocked when the gardener is not present. The Combination number for the padlock is 1221 and the padlock is located at the rear of the gate, behind the two handles. The gardeners working hours are: Winter: Monday to Friday 08.00 to 12.00 and 12.30 to 15.00 Summer: Monday to Friday 0700 to 12.00 and 12.30 to 15.00 Wheelchair access to the cemetery is possible, but may be by alternative entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on 01628 507200.
    • Location Information: Rome War Cemetery lies alongside and within the Aurelian Wall of the ancient city of Rome. It is reached from the Piazza Venezia, the centre of Rome, by going down the Via dei Fori Imperiali, past the Coliseum, and along the Viale Aventino as far as the Porta San Paolo. Before reaching this gate and the monument Pyramid of Caius Cestius, take the road to the right along the wall of the so called Protestant Cemetery, in which are buried the poets Keats and Shelley. Across the road at the far end of that cemetery will be seen Rome War Cemetery, on Via Nicola Zabaglia 50, Monte Testaccio. Alternatively, take the metro and get off at Piramide Metro Station, which is close to Rome War Cemetery, on Via Nicola Zabaglia 50, Monte Testaccio. Cemetery address: Via Nicola Zabaglia 50 - 00153 Roma (RM) Lazio. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 41.87502, Longitude: 12.477238.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Progress through southern Italy was rapid despite stiff resistance, but the advance was checked for some months at the German winter defensive position known as the Gustav Line. Operations in January 1944 landed troops behind the German lines at Anzio, but a breakthrough was not achieved until 18 May when, after fierce fighting, Cassino finally fell to the Allies. Rome was taken on 3 June as the German withdrawal continued. The cemetery was started shortly afterwards and was used mainly for burials from the occupying garrison, but a few graves were brought in from the surrounding country, and some soldiers and airmen who died as prisoners of war in Rome are also buried there. Rome War Cemetery contains 426 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War.

    SALERNO WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime. Wheelchair access possible via main entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on telephone number 01628 507200.
    • Location Information: Coming from Rome, proceed along the A30 following the signs for Salerno-Reggio Calabria; then take the A3, exiting at Pontecagnano or Battipaglia. Turn back towards Salerno on the SS18 coast road. Signs for the cemetery, which is on the north side of the road, should be seen after passing through Bellizzi. Cemetery address: Via G. Leopardi, 1 - Bivio Pratole - 84090 Montecorvino Pugliano (SA) Campania. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 40.625511, Longitude: 14.922513.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Allied objectives were to draw German troops from the Russian front and more particularly from France, where an offensive was planned for the following year. Commonwealth and American forces landed near Salerno on 8-9 September 1943 and there was fierce fighting for some days in the bridgehead that they established. The site for the cemetery was chosen in November 1943 and it contains many burials resulting from the landings and the fighting that followed, but graves were also brought in later from a wide area of south-western Italy. The 59th General Hospital was in the vicinity of Salerno at the end of 1943 and early in 1944. Salerno War Cemetery contains 1,846 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 107 of them unidentified. One casualty of the First World War is also commemorated in the cemetery by special memorial, his grave in a local civil cemetery having been lost.

    SANGRO RIVER WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime. Wheelchair access to site possible, but may be by alternative entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on telephone number 01628 507200
    • Location Information: The Sangro River War Cemetery lies in the Contrada Sentinelle in the Commune of Torino di Sangro, Province of Chieti. Take the autostrada A14 (the road that runs from Taranto in the south to Ancona in the north) and exit at Val di Sangro. After approximately 2.5 kilometres from the exit turn right onto the SS16, Pescara to Vasto road, for nearly 2 kilometres. There is then a sharp right turn up to cemetery. If you come from the station, take a taxi from Torino di Sangro station, otherwise follow the road signs to SS16 (see direction), turn right at the crossroad and continue following the signs. The station is about 7 kilometres from the cemetery. Cemetery address: Contrada Sentinelle s.n. - 66020 Torino di Sangro (CH) Abruzzo. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 42.218406, Longitude: 14.535594.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Allied objectives were to draw German troops from the Russian front and more particularly from France, where an offensive was planned for the following year. Progress through southern Italy was rapid despite stiff resistance, but by the end of October, the Allies were facing the German winter defensive position known as the Gustav Line, which stretched from the river Garigliano in the west to the Sangro in the east. By 4 November, the Allied force that had fought its way up the Adriatic coast was preparing to attack the Sangro river positions. A bridgehead had been established by the 24th and by nightfall on the 30th, the whole ridge overlooking the river was in Allied hands. The site of this cemetery was selected by the 5th Corps and into it were brought the graves of men who had died in the fierce fighting on the Adriatic sector of the front in November-December 1943, and during the static period that followed. In addition, the cemetery contains the graves of a number of escaped prisoners of war who died while trying to reach the Allied lines. SANGRO RIVER WAR CEMETERY contains 2,617 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War. Within the cemetery will be found the SANGRO RIVER CREMATION MEMORIAL, one of three memorials erected in Italy to officers and men of the Indian forces whose remains were cremated in accordance with their faith - the other two cremation memorials are in Forli Indian Army War Cemetery and Rimini Gurkha War Cemetery. The memorial at Sangro River commemorates more than 500 servicemen.

    SANTERNO VALLEY WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited at any time. Wheelchair access to the cemetery is possible, but may be by alternative entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on telephone number 01628 507200.
    • Location Information: Santerno Valley War Cemetery is about 32 kilometres south-west of Imola and a little south of the main road from Imola to Fiorenzuola. Imola is a town on the SS9 halfway between Bologna and Forli. Take the autostrada A1 exiting Roncobilaccio and proceed in the direction of Futa-Fiorenzuola. Go past Fiorenzuola and carry on towards Imola. The cemetery, which is approximately 13 kilometres further on, will be seen on top of the hill on the right hand side. Cemetery address: Strada Statale 610 Cercetole - 50030 Coniale (FI) Tuscany. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 44.163589, Longitude: 11.473492.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. Following the fall of Rome to the Allies in June 1944, the German retreat became ordered and successive stands were made on a series of defensive lines. In the northern Appenine mountains the last of these, the Gothic Line, was breached by the Allies during the Autumn campaign and the front inched forward as far as Ravenna in the Adratic sector, but with divisions transferred to support the new offensive in France, and the Germans dug in to a number of key defensive positions, the advance stalled as winter set in. The cemetery was started by the British 78th Division during the fighting in the Apennines towards the end of 1944, and was later added to by bringing in burials from the surrounding region. Santerno Valley War Cemetery contains 287 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War.

    STAGLIENO CEMETERY, GENOA
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: April 2011 NOTE: From 26th April 2011 essential renovation of the war grave plots within the six terraces of the cemetery and repair of the retaining wall structures will be undertaken. This includes major reinforcement of the walls to the front and rear of Plot II and frontage of Plot III. It will be necessary to interrupt the normal irrigation of Plot I so this will be done by hand to preserve the planting but visitors may notice some reduction in turf quality during this time. Work is expected to take approximately 5 months to complete. Access to Plots I and II will be restricted to safe escort by the contractor on site, via the normal front entrance of the cemetery. Plot III (The Second World War Plot) will be accessible from the entrance on the west side (at the top), on the Via delle Banchelle. We apologise for any inconvenience caused to visitors during this time. This cemetery is steeply terraced with numerous steps. It is necessary to climb the stairway to reach the CWGC Plots, which are on separate terraced levels connected by stairs. The 1914-18 Plots I and II are on Terraces 3 and 4, the 1939-1945 Plot (now known as Plot III) is on Terrace 6. (see layout plan). This cemetery is in the control of the communal authorities who reserve the right to close it at anytime without notice. The location or design of this site makes wheelchair access impossible. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our enquiries department on telephone number 01628 634221.
    • Location Information: Exit at the A12 autostrada at Genova East and follow the signs for the direction of Genova. The road leads down a steep hill through several tunnels. At the bottom of the hill turn right and follow the road for a short distance alongside the riverbed. Take the first bridge to the left and cross to the opposite side of the river and turn left. Due to the one-way traffic system it is now necessary to cross the river again. Take the first bridge to the left, then turn left at the opposite bank. Take the first right just past a very small bus depot. A large Italian communal cemetery is visible on the right. Parking is available outside the communal cemetery. Walk through the large entrance gate into the communal cemetery and follow the road straight ahead. Signs for 'British Cemetery' are seen on the right after approximately 300 metres. Cemetery address: Piazzale Resasco - 16100 Genoa (GE) Liguria. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 44.428463, Longitude: 8.952248.
    • Historical Information: The Italians entered the war on the Allied side, declaring war on Austria, in May 1915. Commonwealth forces were at the Italian front between November 1917 and November 1918, and rest camps and medical units were established at various locations in northern Italy behind the front, some of them remaining until 1919. From November 1917 to the end of the war, Genoa was a base for commonwealth forces and the 11th General, and 38th and 51st Stationary Hospitals, were posted in the city. Staglieno Cemetery contains 230 Commonwealth burials of the First World War. There are also 122 Second World War graves, most of them garrison burials, whilst others were brought in from the surrounding country. The 1939-45 plot was designed by Louis de Soissons.
    • No. of Identified Casualties: 355

    UDINE WAR CEMETERY
    • Country: Italy
    • Locality: unspecified
    • Visiting Information: The cemetery is permanently open and may be visited anytime. Wheelchair access to this cemetery is possible via the main entrance. For further information regarding wheelchair access, please contact our Enquiries Section on telephone number 01628 507200.
    • Location Information: The War Cemetery is in the locality of Adegliacco in the Commune of Tavagnacco, Province of Udine. The town of Udine is about 101 kilometres North-East of Venice. From the centre of Udine take the SS13 towards Tarvisio. After 4.4 kilometres turn right, take the SS13 underpass and the cemetery will be found after the roundabout. If travelling by train, the nearest station is Udine in Europa Unita Street. Cemetery address: Via Alfieri - 33010 Tavagnacco di Udine (UD) Friuli Venezia Giulia. GPS Co-ordinates: Latitude: 46.11700, Longitude: 13.22550.
    • Historical Information: On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, the invasion coinciding with an armistice made with the Italians who then re-entered the war on the Allied side. The Allied advance was stalled for two successive winters: in 1943 on the German defensive position known as the Gustav Line, stretching from the river Gargliano in the west to the Sangro in the east, and in 1944 on the Gothic Line in the northern Appenine mountains. At the beginning of April 1945, the Allies launched their final offensive against the German positions spread out in a line across Italy, south of Bologna. German resistance was by now beginning to disintegrate and the Allies were able to fan out rapidly across the Po valley. Udine was entered by troops of the 6th Armoured Division on 1 May 1945, the day before the German surrender in Italy. Burials in Udine War Cemetery include casualties from the last few days of the war in Italy, some earlier prisoner-of-war and air force casualties, later garrison burials and some made from 70 British General Hospital which was at Udine for several months from May 1945. The cemetery now contains 414 Second World War burials, 14 of them unidentified. There is also one special memorial in the cemetery, commemorating a soldier of the First World War who was buried at the time in Versa Communal Cemetery, but whose grave is now lost.
