Burial Information


Cemetery:
Grave Reference:

5. B. 13.

Location:

The cemetery is a few miles from the centre of Karachi, to the north-east on National Stadium Road and can be reached by taxi. It is now surrounded by the naval colony and is adjacent to the new naval cemetery. The KARACHI WAR CEMETERY is easily identified by its imposing entrance which is part of a dual memorial, the other part being the entrance to Delhi War Cemetery, identical in design but built of a different stone. The main landmark in the area is the National Stadium. The easiest way to reach the cemetery from the city centre is to go to the National Stadium and follow the road leading to Dalmia in which the airport is situated. From the airport follow the reverse road from Dalmia to the National Stadium and the cemetery is situated to the left hand side of National Stadium Road. Owing to constant problems the direction signs have been removed. An attempt will be made at resiting them.
