History of the Kranji War Cemetery
The area of Kranji originally acted as a military base. When the Japanese occupied Malaysia, the Kanji area was used as a store-house for ammunitions.
The names of over 25,000 allied soldiers killed in the war, are inscribed on both sides of the twelve columns of the Memorial Walls. Their bodies were never recovered.
About 4,458 allied soldiers are laid to rest in the Kranji War Graves. The graves are marked with the names of the soldiers, and the lawns surrounding the graves are nicely manicured.
To the north of the Kranji War Cemetery lies the State Cemetery. It's the burial ground of Singapore's first 2 presidents, Inche Yusuf bin Ishak and Benjamin Henry Sheares.
The Military Grave is the final resting place of the commonwealth soldiers and it lies to the east of the Kranji War Cemetery.
The Memorial Ground seats on a hilly-terrain overlooking the mostly under-developed landscape. During the time of the Japanese occupation it acted as a burial-ground for the hospital but later on it was turned into a military-cemetery.
