Eyewitness Tham died without seeing justice.
Tham Yong, 78, described how 14 Scots Guards killed 24 men from the village in 1948.
The colonial authorities claimed the men were shot because they were suspected guerrillas fleeing the scene.
But in an interview two years before her death, Tham Yong, a former rubber tapper, recalled "the day the British killed our men".
She said: "I'm still angry because these were innocent persons but labelled as Communists and bandits, when all they were doing was collecting durians [a Malaysian fruit] and not supplying food to the Communists.
"My advanced cancer means I will not be around much longer, but I hope people remember what happened here so that those who were killed here are never forgotten."
