Location Information

Kranji Military Cemetery, which is a predominantly non-world war site, adjoins Kranji War Cemetery.

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.

Kranji War 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 Military Cemetery is open every day 07:00-18:30.

Historical Information

Kranji Military Cemetery is a substantial non-world war site of 1,422 burials, created in 1975 when it was found necessary to remove the graves of servicemen and their families from Pasir Panjang and Ulu Pandan cemeteries.

Some of the burials have since been re-classified as Commonwealth War Dead and there is also one Dutch Army burial from 1954 in the cemetery.
