Cemetery Details

Location Mueang Kanchanaburi, Kanchanaburi, Thailand
Co‑ordinates N14.031756, E99.525804
Description

The graves of those who died during the construction and maintenance of the Burma-Siam railway (except for the Americans, whose remains were repatriated) were transferred from camp burial grounds and isolated sites along the railway into three cemeteries at Chungkai and Kanchanaburi in Thailand and Thanbyuzayat in Myanmar.

KANCHANABURI WAR CEMETERY is only a short distance from the site of the former 'Kanburi', the prisoner of war base camp through which most of the prisoners passed on their way to other camps. It was created by the Army Graves Service who transferred to it all graves along the southern section of railway, from Bangkok to Nieke.

There are now 5,084 Commonwealth casualties of the Second World War buried or commemorated in this cemetery.
