Private Albert Edward Ciniglio[1] was an English soldier of the British Army who died during the First World War.

He was born on 19 August 1895,[2] in Camberwell, the son of Italian-born Andrea, a builder of pianos and organs, and Louise Ciniglio, of London. At the time of the 1911 census, the younger Ciniglio was working as an assistant book binder while living with his family at 21 Frederick Street, Gray's Inn Road.

Ciniglio died on 15 September 1916, during the Somme Offensive, while serving with the 1st Bn (City of London) Battalion (Royal Fusiliers), The London Regiment on the Western Front.

His body was never recovered and he is thus commemorated by the Thiepval Memorial, Pier and Face 9 D and 16 B. He was awarded two medals for his service, the British War Medal and Victory Medal.

He had one brother, Andrew Ciniglio, who lived in New York City and served as a private in the United States Marines Corps, Company H, 127th Infantry, 32nd Division. Ciniglio died on 4 September 1918 and was interred at Arlington National Cemetery, Virginia.
