Kanchanaburi War Cemetery (Don Rak) and Chungkai War Cemetary

Kanchanaburi War Cemetery is located on Saeng Chuto Road, the main road through the town. During the construction of the Burma-Siam railway, approximately 13,000 POW’s died and were buried alongside the railway. An estimated 80,000 to 100,000 civilians also died in the course of the project. There are 5085 WWII Commonwealth casualties buried or commemorated in this cemetery as well as 1896 Dutch war graves and 1 non-war grave.  

Located on the banks of the River Kwai, just outside the town of Kanchanaburi, Chungkai War Cemetery is a smaller and less visited memorial site. There are now 1426 Commonwealth and 313 Dutch WWII burials in this cemetery.
