I've visited it recently and found the place to be exquisitely well maintained, the "carpet" grass is very beautifully well maintained and so does the surroundings. Well done to the authority for keeping up this attraction place to be beautifully maintained.

Like most Commonwealth Cemeteries, it is beautifully laid out, gardened and maintained. The location is peaceful, and is a great place to spend a thoughtful half-hour reading the headstones and remembering history. Car parking outside is very limited, but this is only a 300m walk from the car park by the Open Air Swimming Pool and the Station where you... More

Was surprised how small this cemetery is, but it is very neat and well maintained. There are 2 plots on either side of the road.

The War Cemtery is where WWII fallen British and other members of her majesty's armed services have been laid to rest. The plots are well organized, the grass well-kept and overall its a tranquil spot.

War cemetery can be reached on foot or car. Do not expect any buses to go up there. Taxi's can be quite pricy. If you like to walk, walk by the lake garden until up the cemetery.

If you are a war memorial buff it'd be great. As a cemetery or just place to visit much much better is the old graveyard adjoining the church on the walk out of taiping if you ere going to Tesco Mall
