The Rangoon graveyard was first used as a graveyard immediately after the reconquest of Rangoon in May 1945. Later the Army Graves Service pulled from several tombs in and around Rangoon into tombs, which included those of the men who were killed as POWs in Rangoon prison. Today, 1,381 Commonwealth soldiers from the Second World Peace Wars are either entombed or remembered in this cryo.
Of the funerals, 86 are unknown and there are specific memorial sites for more than 60 victims whose tombs could not be traced out. During 1948, the tombs of 36 Commonwealth soldiers who were killed in Rangoon during the First World War were brought to this graveyard, 35 of them from the Rangoon Cantonal Graveyard and one from Rangoon City Graveyard (Pazundaung).
Rangoon Memorial is in Taukkyan War Cemetery.
