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.

As an ex soldier I like to pay my respects to those who were not lucky enough to return home to their loved ones and lay in a foreign field far from home. They gave their lives, so I give them a few minutes of my time and by visiting these sites we ensure they remain open and well cared... More

If you have the opportunity, please pay a visit to the Salerno War Cemetery. It's out of town ion the way to Pontecagnano - unfortunately not very well known. A beautifully kept memorial ground and burial place for over a thousand young men who died during the Second World War when the Allies landed in SDslerno in 1944.

Immaculately maintained. A fitting tribute to all who fell serving their country. To visit and pay respects, and say a silent prayer to those who gave the ultimate sacrifice is the least you can do when visiting the area. Visitor book available to sign and give tribute.

This is only a small part of history of World War 2. Yes it's a cemetery as some say, but you see how many people from different countries sacrificed their lives for us. And this is only a small number who lost their lives. For me a chance to say thank you and say a prayer. Many men laid to... More

My last days before moving into my property I happened upon this and stopped and looked around. To me it is depressing to be at any cemetery and this was no exception; anywhere in the world there are war cemeteries and I would not even know how to rate this as the only cemeteries I ever visited that brought real...
