Close to where the former POW camp was once situated is the large Kanchanaburi War Cemetery, the entrance to which can be found on the busy, main Saeng Chuto Road that runs through the centre of the town. It is the largest of two cemeteries in the area with more than 6,000 graves of which 3,000 something are British, 1000 more are Australian and 2,000 something are Dutch.
All the graves in the Kanchanaburi War Cemetery are marked by bronze plaques, mounted on small tilted concrete blocks. On each bronze plaque can be found the insignia of the regiment of the deceased and beside each small grave can be found local flowering shrubs which are neatly set out in rows and surrounded by green lush buffalo grass.
Address: Saeng Chuto Road, Kanchanaburi, Thailand
