Cemeteries in Hong Kong

This is a resource page for people researching the history of a person that died in Hong Kong. Since many of Hong Long's old paper records have been destroyed, grave headstones may be the only remaining record of a person's life and death.

Here's a list of cemeteries in Hong Kong, plus a map of their locations. Click on any cemetery name for more information about it.

And the list isn't complete - if you know of more, please use the instructions below to add another.

To add another cemetery to the list and map, start by clicking here to create a new Place. You'll see a new window appear where you can enter details about the cemetery.  The important point to remember is that in the Tags: section, you'll need to type the word cemetery so that your new Place automatically appears on the list and map above.

If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.
