visited the English Cemetary while visiting Salerno. I was closed when we got there. We opened the gate and took a few pics, as the sprinklers drenched us. The place is immaculate amd very interesting for war buffs.

Well maintained,but difficult trek to get to by public transport,from the Salerno railway station a number 8 bus goes there approx every half hour,but as one of the locals stated they don't have any rules here,so don't set your watch by it. It is also used by the locals and stops at every stop,it took us a good hour from... More

As with Commonwealth Cemeteries throughout the world this Cemetery is immaculate. The final resting place of approximateley 1700 Allied servicement who died during the Itallian Campaign during WW2, mainly during the landings at Salerno in September 1943 Upon entering the cemetery one encounters a large slab of Portland Stone - a non denominational altar with a Christian "Cross of Sacrifice"...

The most beautiful setting for the most tragic of reasons. I should be pleased to have my bones rest in such scenic splendour.

On 3 September 1943 the Allies invaded the Italian mainland, 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. Salerno War Cemetery contains 1,846 Commonwealth burials of the Second World War, 107 of them unidentified. it is very well-kept. a must for patriots.

To go there take the No 34 bus from Piazza Concordia (aka Lungomare Trieste) in Salerno. I took a bus at 9 am and showed the driver my note pad with the cemetery details so he would let me... More

The Salerno Allied Cemetery is a CWWG / Commonwealth War Graves site which is nicely sited, been grass and maintained very well. Fitting final resting place and monument to those who perished in / after the invasion of the Italian mainland in 1943. ....

Like all CWWG it is immaculately kept. In the cemetery are nearly 2000 commonwealth dead from nearly exclusively WW2. The majority are British but there are Australian, Canadian, South African, Indian, New Zealand are even a sole Russian. Most are from the allied invasion of Italy in late 1943 when the soft underbelly of Europe proved to be a tough... More

You can catch a no 8 bus from outside Salerno railway station,this will take you past the cemetery,which will be on your left and the bus stop is just a little further along the road,also the return bus stop,the buses run every 40 minutes.I hope this will be of help to anyone who is planning on making a visit.

Visited because my great uncle Edwin Marsh Stockley is buried there. Died of a friendly fire incident on 8th September 1943. The graveyard is beautifully kept as are all those under the wargraves commission.
