Burial Information


Cemetery:
Grave Reference:

IV, D, 14.

Location:

The town of Caserta, which is famous for its Royal Palace, designed by Vanvitelli in the middle of the 18th century to the order of Charles III of Bourbon, lies about 27 kilometres due north of Naples. The Palace served as headquarters for the Allied armies in Italy for the greater part of the duration of the Italian campaign. If going by car visitors should take the highway to Naples, No.A2, and leave it at the Caserta Nord exit. Proceed to the first set of traffic lights and then turn left and continue along the main street eastward for 2.2 kilometres, past the Royal Palace. Just after the Royal Palace, about 0.2 kilometres, turn left at the main intersection (a piazza with round corners) and head north for 2.0 kilometres, following this street along the eastern edge of the Royal Gardens. After 2.0 kilometres, turn right and proceed directly westward for 0.8 kilometres, then turn southward down an incline. After a distance of 0.3 kilometres there will be a large Communal Cemetery located on the left; proceed to the main gates and the CWGC plot will be found at the end of this road. Cars may be parked within the Communal Cemetery grounds.
