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.

I had a day before meetings in Singapore and took a couple of hours out. It was jolly hot.

I was staggered by the 24 thousand dead claim on the main tribute. It is a slightly noisy place now, but the cemetery is unique. The gardeners show true deference to their envionment.

It is beautiful. I teared at many names, not because I have lost a relative, but because I recognised a common surname and region (personally, East Surrey) and also acknowledge the sacrifice.

It is a moving location. So very glad I visited.

But for the grace of God..

This site is a personal journey for some, a historical exploration for others. Row after row of well-tended graves, most of them very clearly marked, await your respectful gaze.

A bit of the beaten track for the average vistor to Singapore, that said only a short bus ride from the MRT, I think it was one stop and a short walk.
Kranji is excellent not for any sort of tourist experience, but for what it represents, it is a very well kept memorial, and a reminder to us all of the sacrifice made by those who lost thier lives during WW2.
It was good to see a steady stream of visitors, never busy just couples and family groups callign to pay tier respects, of the tourist track but a memoerable visit.

The fallen have to be remembered; especially in the vain attempt of keeping the sovereignty of this country. Children of the next generation should visit and acqaint themselves on the history and highest price paid by these fallen men and women to defend our nation. The serenity of this place epitomizes the peace in this country. A must see for all .... visitors and locals alike.

I found this site awe inspiring, you just must make the effort to visit and pay your respects to the Soldiers who gave their life defending Singapore during the invasion.
