Taiping War Cemetery is a burial ground dedicated to the allied office staff and servicemen martyred during the second world war. Erected and maintained by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission, this cemetery is located in Bukit Larut, Taiping, Perak, Malaysia. About 850 casualties from the second world war are commemorated here out of which 500 still remain unidentified. Most of these buried men originated from the UK, Australia, China, Malaysia, and of Gurkha heritage.
Segregated into two segments of land, this graveyard has placed Christian graves located on the southeastern side of the road while non-Christian graves are buried on the opposite side. A cross of sacrifice stands on the southeastern boundary and a Stone of remembrance stands on the northwestern boundary. Jalan Bukit Larut is a road that serves as a boundary between these Christian and non-christian sections of the cemetery. These graves are marked with white granite headstone depicting their regimental badge if known. Muslim graves are aligned in such a manner that they face Mecca, thus following the Muslim religious convictions.
