Location Information The Commonwealth War Graves Commission's Kranji War Cemetery is 22 kilometres north of the city of Singapore, on the north side of Singapore Island overlooking the Straits of Johore. It is located just to the West of the Singapore-Johore road (Bukit Timah Expressway) on Woodlands Road, just to the south of the crossroads with Turf Club Avenue and Kranji Road. There is a short approach road from the main road. The Cemetery is known locally as Kranji Memorial and one must be sure of the address before boarding a taxi as most taxi drivers do not know the Cemetery. There are also bus stops on the main road facing the Cemetery. The Kranji MRT (train) terminal is a short distance from the Cemetery, approximately 10 to 15 minutes away by foot. A previous visitor has advised us that a small map of the route can be obtained from the MRT ticket office. Visiting Information Kranji War Cemetery is open every day 07:00-18:30. The cemetery is constructed on a hill with the means of access being via three flights of steps, rising over four metres from the road level, which makes wheelchair access to this site impossible.

I am filled with deep reverence as I walk among the tombstones. To think that each name was once a young recruit or an older officer who walked this earth. We owe so much to those who gave their lives.

This was our first visit to any war memorial outside of Europe. In scale the losses are comparable to many of the large Flanders or Somme Cemeteries, and equal in the waste of human life, but these sacrifices make possible the peace that we hope...More

This a very moving place, impeccably maintained by the Commonwealth Graves Commission. It is sobering to wander through the rows and rows of headstones and the walls which record the sacrifice of many nationalities and faiths who fought and died against a common enemy. Strangely,...More

A pleasant and well laid out location to sit and reflect on those awful days and what this part of Singapore looked like during wartime.
