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.

This tall white monument is near the cricket ground, but I felt it was nothing to write home about. Just a white needle-like structure

I feel the best time to come is before the sunrise or during sunset. This will avoid the hot weather of Singapore to make the walk more pleasant and soak in the serenity of the place.

Remember those who are before us. I went there on a business trip. As a Singaporean, this gave me a chance to know my country better. Definitely worth the time.

We drove there as we listed that location as one of our “Explore SG North/West” staycation. We are Singaporeans but we didn’t really hang around this part of Singapore that much so we started off with this location as the start of our countryside trail........More

As you might expect, the Commonwealth War Graves Commission keep the cemetery in pristine condition. The rather brutalist 60's architecture doesn't quite have the serenity evoked by Lutyen's works in Flanders.

The grounds are beautifully maintained. The plaque at the entrance to the Memorial shows how the Japanese managed to defeat a superior force.
