Overview

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.

Visited the cemetery as currently doing my wife’s family tree, and came across a family member whose name is etched on the memorial as he has no grave. Like most cemeteries of these sort they are very poignant and silent as well as beautifully well-maintained....More

As soon as I started walking up the stairs, I was already crying. Very emotional experience. The cemetery itself is incredibly well kept and there is a real beauty about the memorial. Definitely worth checking

Kranji War Memorial isn't the typical weekend family/date destination - it's a place for pondering, reflection and for respecting those who have sacrificed their lives for the country, back in the world war. It's a beautifully kept place, very quiet and serene, with a sombre...More

Easy access; just exit Kranji MRT and walk toward the Racetrack. The War Memorial is just a bit further along. Not farther than a 10 minute walk. There's a wide footpath, so you'll be safe in terms of traffic. There's a brown & white sign...More

I took the mrt from Orchard Rd to Kranji and it's about a 10min walk from the station. The memorial is very peaceful and what strikes you is how well maintained it is. An area of historical importance in WW2, reading some of the headstones...More

If you have any feeling at all for the sacrifices made by the young men in the Second World War then this is the place to visit and contemplate on the alternative we don't have to live with.

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
