Cemeteries in Hong Kong

Submitted by David on Fri, 10/29/2010 - 12:26

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.
