Kialung Wan Cemetery, Victoria Mortuary, and the HK Death & Birth Registration Bureau
I've been reading some archival documents circa 1946 and have been left with a few questions that I hope Gwulo readers can help me with.
1.) Kialung Wan Cemetery: Where is (or was) this cemetery in Hong Kong? Does it still exist and has its name changed? Are there alternate spellings of "Kialung Wan"?
2.) Victoria Mortuary: Was this in Kennedy Town in 1946? Was "Victoria Mortuary" the official name?
3.) Hong Kong Death and Birth Registration Bureau: Where was this organization housed (as in what address) in 1946? In English, was "Hong Kong Death and Birth Registration Bureau" the official name for this organization?
Any and all replies will be helpful. Thanks!
