Commonwealth Memorial of the Missing Singapore

This memorial is located at Kranji War Cemetery. Written on the memorial are 24,315 names, of killed Commonwealth soldiers who have no known grave.

The soldiers commemorated by the memorial died during the campaigns in Malaya and Indonesia or in subsequent captivity, many of them during the construction of the Burma-railway, or at sea while being transported into imprisonment elsewhere. The memorial also commemorates airmen who died during operations in this area and the surrounding oceans.
