Burial Information

Grave Reference:

I, B, 9.


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 Paulo. Before reaching this gate and the monumental pyramid of Caius Cestius, a road should be taken to the right along the wall of the so-called Protestant Cemetery, in which are buried the poets Keats and Shelley. Across a road at the far end of that cemetery will be seen the ROME WAR CEMETERY.
