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 must see”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 10, 2013

The moment we arrived here to learn about the past history of Singapore on how this fallen soldiers sacrificed themselves make our heart move and think how lucky we all are today.
This is a beautiful and peaceful cemetery for the soldiers who died defending Singapore against the Japanese in WWII. The graves are very well maintained, the grounds are beautiful and peaceful.
It's always at places like this where you have to say a silent thank you to those that sacrificed for us to walk free.
The cemetery is very well kept so if you have time to spare or need a breather from the hustle of the city, it's definitely worth a visit.

As part of an organised tour we visited this memorial. There are row upon row of headstones honoring the fallen, it was very peaceful and tends to be a very moving experience. Well worth avisit.

“Very moving”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2013

We came here with a tour group. The memorial is beautiful, the gardens are well maintained and it is all in very good condition. There is a book of names there so people can find relatives and friends. Each gravestone has there own flowers and shrubs growing, its nice because even if people cant visit their loved ones there are still flowers there. There are no toilet facilities there to use.

We recently visited the war memorial and were really taken by it. It is maintained perfectly, and is very peaceful and inspiring. An easy train and bus trip from the cbd.
