The cemetery is mentioned in footnote 12 of "Heritage Appraisal of the Béthanie 139 Pok Fu Lam Road, Hong Kong":

Inevitably, some sick missionaries died (a total of 101). Those missionaries who died at the Béthanie had been originally buried in the grounds of the sanatorium, and their bones were eventually transferred to Chai Wan Catholic Cemetery after the sale of the Béthanie in 1975.


Comments have a lists of the burials in this cemetery:

Most of the burials were of the French Fathers from the mission. One that wasn't was of Louis Reynaud, the wartime French Consul, on July 5th, 1943. (Click for details of burial and more about Mr Reynaud.)
