Attraction details
Type: Cemeteries, Sights & Landmarks
Owner description: 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.

We went with a tour group to visit the Memorial. The first impression is inspiring but in a sad way. So very many young people died for our democracy. It always brings tears to my eyes. This is a sight everybody including children should see. Highly recommended.

Located North of Singapore, Kranji War Memorial is certain a peaceful place compared to the bustling Singapore. Take a Mrt to Kranji and take a cab (advisable for those with children),Lawns are clean and manicured carpet grass well maintained. As like many war memorials, this is a place to reflect and not to be entertained. Do respect the fallen hero's... More

To those of us who had connections with the WW2 past it is good to see that the high standards of the British War Graves Commission have been maintained in Singapore. It was well presented and a fitting memorial to those who lost their lives. As Australians, we were particularly moved by the visit. Sad but nice to see and... More

Reached this memorial on the way to get to the HOHO office. It's a neat and well maintained memorial. Its almost in the heart of the city but maintains its stillness and magnitude.

The people of Singapore have done an amazing job with this war memorial. It is beautiful and serene but at the same time, realising the horrors of war. There are 24000 people buried there from many different countries. I took the train from the CBD and it took about 50 mins. There are signs up in the train station but... More

A well maintained Memorial to all the Men & Women who gave their lives. Take the MRT to Kranji, follow the signs and on exiting the station TURN LEFT and walk for 10 mins. Stay on the main road then you will see a BIG SIGN.
