Burial Information


Cemetery:
Grave Reference:

Coll. grave I. C. 27-30.

Location:

Exit at the A12 motorway at Genova East and follow the signs for the direction of Genova. The road leads down a steep hill through several tunnels. At the bottom of the hill turn right and follow the road for a short distance alongside the riverbed. Take the first bridge to the left and cross to the opposite side of the river and turn left. Due to the one-way traffic system it is now necessary to cross the river again. Take the first bridge to the left, then turn left at the opposite bank. Take the first right just past a very small bus depot. A large Italian Communal Cemetery is visible on the right. Parking is available outside the Communal Cemetery. Walk through the large entrance gate into the Communal Cemetery and follow the road straight ahead. Signs for "British Cemetery" are seen on the right after approximately 300 metres. Follow the stairway uphill to reach the CWGC Cemtery, which consists of plots on 3 separate levels connected by stairs.
