    CWGC Kranji Military Cemetery: pics of c1400 graves now available.

    There are 2 separate cemeteries contained within the same land area at CWGC Kranji (Singapore):

    1. Kranji War Cemetery: The main area itself, containing c4500 WW2 graves plus various memorials including the Singapore Memorial (engraved with c25,000 names).

    2. In addition, there is a separate area (over the brow of the hill in the top right-hand corner) called Kranji Military Cemetery, with c1400 graves covering both pre/post WW2 periods i.e c1910 to c1939 and c1946 to c1985-95.
    note: many, if not most of these graves were originally at Pasir Panjang and Ulu Pandan cemetries and were moved to their present location in the mid-1970's.

    Even though ww2talk is dedicated to WW2 graves, I felt it appropriate to photograph all the graves here, mainly because of the historical 'content' and very interesting 'mix' i.e it contains many military graves from the Borneo and Indonesian Conflicts including those of men and women who were serving in SE Asia (in times of peace) and sadly, the graves of wives/mothers/children. There are many children buried here!

    All above images are now available - FREE - to family members, relatives, researchers and historians. When asked, I normally suggest that you make a donation to a Forces Charity of your own choice.
