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.

One has to go if you are Australian, English , Indian etc etc to pay respect to these fallen men. When you see the age of some of these men it breaks your heart to see such waste. A MUST.

The war memorial is located just over half a mile away from Kranji MRT station. I came unstuck using the Map application on my iPhone as it erroneously sent me up the Turf Club Flyover and pretty much doubled my journey in the heat. When...More

The Kranji War Memorial is the final resting place for thousands who gave their lives defending Malaya/Singapore. Most were young men from India, Britain, Australia and New Zealand. Some have gravestones but many do not. Their names are inscribed here to honor them and remind...More

We had a guide take us through this Memorial. The guide explained some of the writings on the head stones & showed us meaningful areas. A very moving & emotional experience. The grounds are kept immaculate & the views towards the city are beautiful.

This is a eye opening memorial. Not just the sheer number of grave stones but the number of different crests highlighting who they fought for. The memorial is very clean and maintained. There is some information at the front gates but we did this in...More

This is a "must do" when in Singapore🇸🇬. The realisation of how many lives were lost, the stupidity of those in leadership and a so much better understanding of what actually happened. Very sobering indeed. Lest We Forget is so apt.

A must see tribute to the fallen soldiers from the Japanese invasion of Singapore. Head stones from the soldiers from many different countries are together in an amazing location.

It's a beautiful spot with a sombre message. We were able to look up our relative and find their spot without difficulty, and the spend 30 minutes walking through the manicured grounds. Not for everyone, but for us, time well spent.

Closest subway is Kranji on red North/South line, and from there it is about an 800m walk, alternatively it is about a ~S$30 taxi ride from down town. Definitely worth going to pay your respects at this moving place. It is very noticeable the large...More
