Its so incredibly sad to wander through the graves of so many brave people. The death railway is so incredibly sad, we felt honoured to be able to walk through this cemetery.

The cemetery, across the road from the Death Railway Museum, is well-laid out, making it easy to read the personal messages from the family on each tombstone. It makes the people much more real and is a touching memorial to them, many of whom were...More
