  • After finding this site some time back and adding some photos of Uncle Ivor, clearly his grave is at the Faenza War Cemetery, Italy.

  • Albert Ivor Roulston was my Uncle (one of my Mother's brothers). Unfortunately I did not have the opportunity nor the pleasure to meet him. He died after being wounded when World War II was practically over. He is buried somewhere in Italy, but to my regret, not known where in Italy.
    Maybe someone does?

    In memory of my Uncle Ivor (Albert Ivor Roulston).

    Lots of love, your niece Suzanne (Suzi)
