A visiting relative wanted to go and "look for her uncle" after failing to find him at Changi on her last visit to Singapore. When I googled to get basic visitor information, I found the excellent search facilities of the Commonwealth War Graves Commission:
Using this we were able to discover that her long lost uncle was indeed listed on the memorial at Kranji, and which column he was on. Her family had never known what became of him, and so it was wonderful to discover, via this website (and further internet research), where and when he had died.
The memorial is well described by other reviewers, and I agree is a beautiful spot to visit, even if you have no family connection to WW2 Singapore and Malaya. We went by taxi, and were able to phone book a taxi to pick us up again. We went before 9.00am when it was still fairly cool, which I recommend. There are no toilets on site, and not necessarily any staff available to answer your questions.
We combined with a visit to the nearby Sungei Buloh Wetland Reserve.
