Location Information

The Commonwealth War Graves Commission's Kranji War...

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.

We went on a half day tour which included other places so only had about 45 minutes here. They have so much interesting stuff you could spend a day there. We would love to go back with more time to go through slowly.

This was a beautifully kept war cemetery - we did not realise how big it was and there were a lot of graves from India and Australia as well as British.

I've been to Singapore many times but I never visited this place. So this time I take a tour to visit this place. It's quite a good place to visit as well as see a good view of Johor Bahru from this place. The only thing I don't like is I have to walk on Singapore heat while sightseeing in... More

Immaculately kept, which is fitting for such a memorial. Stunning hill top views back to the city. $20 in a taxi back and forth to the city far easier than navigating the m r t system unless you have plenty of time on your hands. We were lucky and picked up a taxi on the way back that was dropping... More

Visited on 12th November (unfortunately couldn't make it on the 11th or the Sunday). As luck would have it, a band was playing in preparation for the Sunday memorial service which added to the atmosphere. The cemetery itself is beautifully maintained as is the case with every CWGC location that I have visited. It is always moving to see the... More

Spent a most moving, if very hot afternoon, visiting this very peaceful war graves cemetery for the allied soldiers killed during the Japanese occupation of Singapore. It is quite a distance from the centre of the city but worth the time it takes to get there. The easiest way is by taxi which is not too expensive. A tip however,... More

Whilst not the biggest Memorial Kranji is beautifully maintained and is a peaceful resting place for over 4,000 soldiers from WW, sadly many unmarked graves for the 800 or so unidentified men. A Singapore Memorial tributes the 24,000 Asians who lost their lives. As we visited on Remembrance Day it was touching to see the wreaths laid from many Dignitaries... More

I think we all need to be reminded of what humans are capable of and this is a visual showing this. The site is extremely well kept and looked after.

I found this museum to be deeply moving and above all it was a respectful memorial to the previous occupants of Changi Prison. Full of history and the experiences of those who lived through this period in the history of Singapore.
