The War Cemetery lies in the locality of Miano at Via Vincenzo Ianfolla, off the Corso Secondigliano, in the Commune and Province of Naples. Take the autostrada A1, the Rome to Naples road. After the last toll booth, carry on following the signs for the airport. Pass the end of the airport approach road and turn right at the next T junction, following the main road for about 4 kilometres.

Historical Information:

The site of the cemetery was selected in April 1944 and contains the bodies of those who died in the garrison or were killed in the surrounding area. The 65th and 92nd British General Hospitals were in Naples from late in 1943 until the end of the war, also the 67th British General Hospital for the greater part of that time. Men who died in these hospitals were buried in Naples War Cemetery; and into it too were brought graves of men originally buried in many small cemeteries in the immediate vicinity. There are now over 1,200, 1939-45 war casualties commemorated in this site. Of these, over 10 are unidentified.
