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.

“A great tribute to those who defended Singapore during WWII”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

This is beautiful and sacred ground and is a wonderful monument to those who gave their lives in WWII. It is a bit far from the central city but worth a trip if you have an extra day and enjoy war memorials. Like everything else in Singapore, it is accessible by public transit.

“Beautiful memorial/cemetery. Worth a visit.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

We visited the memorial as part of our Kranji staycation.

A peaceful and beautiful place. Perfectly maintained lawns that my boy had a blast exploring. Found easily via car. Would visit again.

“A place for peaceful contemplation”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2013

The war memorial is a little out of the centre but easily reachable on the MRT to Kranji and then a bus from alongside the station for just two stops (quarter of a mile). For those wishing to pay their respects it gives a better idea of the nations involved in the fall of Singapore. A really well maintained war memorial.

“A fitting and solemn tribute to the brave men of WW II”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

I visited Kranji Cemetry today to pay my respects to a fellow Artilleryman from Bolton on behalf of his son with whom I attend the same RAA Branch. The Cemetry is so well kept and is a shining example of the respect due to our brave fallen heroes. The staff do such an excellent job and do so with respect and solemnity. Keep up the great work on keeping Kranji pristine. Ubique!
