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.

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

Kranji is a little out of the way, but not actually difficult to get to - catch the MRT from the centre, and a bus from Kranji station, then it's a short walk up the road to the Memorial. As with all Commonwealth War Graves...More

A silence hangs over the area and you think of what all these people went through in the war. Most of us have no idea and no only what we have been told and seen in films. They need to be remembered

Walk into the site and one could sense the great acts of the heros involved in the fight against Singapore enemies way back in history.

Used to enjoy going to the Kranji War Memorial for Anzac Day Services. Spend some time viewing the headstones and you really come away with the reality of how young some of the fallen were - it's an interesting place to spend some time and...More

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..

Came to remember my Uncle who died in the war, and who I had never met. Very emotional experience. Wouldn't have missed it for the world.
