About
Cassino War Cemetery lies in the Commune of Cassino, Province of Frosinone, 139 kilometres south-east of Rome. The site for CASSINO WAR CEMETERY was originally selected in January 1944, but the development of the battle during the first five months of that year made it impossible to use it until after the Germans had withdrawn from Cassino. During these early months of 1944, Cassino saw some of the fiercest fighting of the Italian campaign, the town itself and the dominating Monastery Hill proving the most stubborn obstacles encountered in the advance towards Rome. The majority of those buried in the war cemetery died in the battles during these months. There are now 4,271 Commonwealth servicemen of the Second World War buried or commemorated at Cassino War Cemetery. 289 of the burials are unidentified. Within the cemetery stands the CASSINO MEMORIAL which commemorates over 4,000 Commonwealth servicemen who took part in the Italian campaign whose graves are not known.

So impressed with and grateful for the obvious and ongoing maintenance being given to this important resting place. Tranquil and well cared for. Sombre, yet comforting. Thank you CWGC.

I am always fascinated by cemeteries especially in contrast to American military cemeteries. This cemetery is beautifully maintained by the Commonwealth. It is yet another reminder of the cost of war. The flowers on the graves are gorgeous! I highly recommend a stop here if it is not included on a tour.

The Commonwealth War Cemetery and Memorial is a stately and gracious reminder of the human cost of war, with carefully aligned tombstones and other markers. Stroll thoughtfully through them to find some of the names and dates and the unit insignia or religious emblems. Beautifully kept flowers are found throughput the memorial

A visit makes one think a lot about what the previous generation did for our freedom. A very beautiful place to remember heroes and to reflect and thank them. A lot of history is displayed and you will learn something you never knew about the war.

This was amazing to visit and to see the New Zealanders that had fallen. Also very good to see that a small group of kiwis had been to the site and left a sign.

We came here looking for my husband's namesake, having been forearmed with the details of his place in this sacred burial ground. Sooo many graves, and this is only 1 of 6 in the area! We found him. This was the very saddest visit of our tour through Europe. I think only people with a person to visit will come here. Spare a thought then, for the 10,000 residents who also died. And the men were soooo young. What a costly and fatal battle this was for so many.

Within sight of the famous monastery and the battles over it, this is a place to remember the fallen. There are names of those lost in action but without a body.

You can watch movies, read books, but until you actually stand before and see just how imposing this battlefield was, it males the courage of those who fought here that much more intense. Cudos to those who maintain this and other Memorials like it.
