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.

Although Singapore has a tropical climate, it seems like the breezes at Kranji keep this hallowed ground blessed by cooling breezes. It is located just high enough to catch the cooling ocean breezes as visitors can see Indonesia from it's vistas. What's most impressive about...More

Well Maintained memorial, the place is calm and history of the memorial is all we need to go through before going inside.. Can spend around an hour at leisure .. But i will not recommend this as a must watch in Singapore..

If you are using public transport it will be pretty difficult to get to. Well maintained memorial to all those who laid down their lives 75 years ago. To me this was a personal pilgrimage. My great uncles name is also on the wall.

Unfortunately we didn't see any florists near Kranji. The Singapore florists do some brilliant arrangements so we suggest ordering the flowers once you arrive in Singapore and take them with you to the memorial. There were... More
