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.

The War Memorial and Cemetery is yet another poignant reminder of those who gave their often very short lives for our freedom. Everyone should visit war graves somewhere in the world at some time in their life, just so these brave people are never ever forgotten

Well worth a visit to this historic memorial, very moving and full of history. Note the location is the highest natural point in Singapore!

We caught to train to Kranji and walked to the Memorial. It is possible to catch a cab from the station and ask him to wait.
We enjoyed the walk which took us about 20 minutes from thaw station.
The location is so neat and tidy and we found it very moving as we walked along the rows of crosses.

We went out to Kranji on the MTR, we found our way easily from the station, the memorial is so well looked after and maintained. It was very poignant to look around and so sad to see how many graves were simply marked A Soldier Of The War. Lest we forget.

A must see in Singapore. Honors those who were killed by Japanese forces in 1942 during invasion of Singapore. Very moving as every name is recorded.
