Burial Information

Grave Reference:

IX. D. 19.


CASSINO WAR CEMETERY lies in the Commune of Cassino, Province of Frosinone, 139 kilometres south-east of Rome. It is situated in the valley of the River Liri immediately below the southern spurs of the central Apennines. Above it at a distance of one kilometre is the dominating hill on which stands the Abbey of Monte Cassino, founded by St. Benedict in the year 529 on the site of an ancient temple of Apollo. If approaching the CASSINO WAR CEMETERY by road, follow the Highway A2 from Rome to Naples and leave it at the Cassino exit. After passing the pay booths, follow the sign for Cassino. At the traffic lights, after a block of flats, turn right towards the locality of S. Angelo and the CWGC signs will then be seen.

  • Photo of Frank Harrow Whiting– Frank was born in Mirror Alberta in 1921 to Frank and Helen Whiting and was brother to David, Dorothy and Agnes. The family eventually moved to Victoria where Frank enlisted with the Seaforth Highlander Regiment in Vancouver. I have attached a photo of him in his uniform taken around that time.
Frank was killed in action during the attack on the Hitler Line with the Seaforth Highlanders at the centre of the attack. During the initial attack, the regiment came under a heavy artillery and mortar barrage. The casualties suffered by the Second Infantry Brigade that day were greater than any other day of the Italian Campaign with 162 men killed.
