Location Information

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission's Kranji War...

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.

Very moving and special experience at the ANZAC Day Dawn Service. This War Memorial is very well looked after and all the headstones and monuments are surrounded by flowers and shrubs. My uncle was killed during the Fall of Singapore in Feb 1942, so this was an emotional visit for me and a wonderful way to remember him and all... More

Very moving experience! Very pleased to see the Australian Government through the Commonwealth War Graves Commission have assisted our Singaporean friends to produce and maintain this tribute to all who gave their lives for freedom.

A fitting memorial to the fallen of Singapore Military activity which is lovingly and carefully maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission. Anyone with a relative interred here but unable to visit, should be take great comfort from the conscientious nature of the ground staff

Reaching this cemetery is not easy from the MRT and it's probably best to take t taxi from Kranji to the cemetery itself . There are two cemeteries here: the Commonwealth War Graves Commission Cemetery and the State Cemetery. The State Cemetery on the right after the main gate is the final resting place of Singapores first and second Presidents.... More
