The ceremony in Rome is open to the public, and those wishing to attend are requested to arrive at 10.30 and sign the visitors’ book at the cemetery entrance.
There are a number of Commonwealth war graves in Italy, all administered by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Those in Rome, Anzio and Monte Cassino are among the most important.
The Rome War Cemetery was the work of architect Louis de Soissons, who designed about 50 war cemeteries throughout Italy and Greece, and it contains the graves of 426 Commonwealth service people.
