Ranchi is a town in the State of Bihar some 400 kilometres north-west of Calcutta. It can be reached by air from Delhi, Calcutta and a number of other cities. RANCHI WAR CEMETERY is on Old Hazari Bagh Road about 1.5 kilometres from Ranchi railway station. It is situated next to the Christian cemetery near Kantatoli Chowk. The RANCHI WAR CEMETERY entrance being several metres off the road can easily be missed, and few taxi drivers know the way. Visitors should contact their hotel manager for guidance. There is no residential Caretaker on site and the gate is locked between 5pm and 8am. During working hours the cemetery register can be obtained from one of the gardeners.
