Notes from lolau:

Anybody know the history and photos of Ho Mun Tin Catholic Cemetery (Kowloon I.L. No. 2148) which I found it from the Gov't Gazette of 27.6.1930?

This cemetery area was later resumed by the government and was transferred to the Cheung Sha Wan Catholic Cemetery.

Are these two cemeteries in the same place, then?  

The new cemetery is in a different area. I've made a Place for it:

Is there some way to find out who was buried in the Ho Man Tin Catholic Cemetery? Were all the records transferred to Cheung Sha Wan Cemetery? When? Any help much appreciated.

I followed the steps at https://gwulo.com/comment/41386#comment-41386 and see that familysearch.org has four scanned documents from this cemetery:

  • Register of Interments, Sections A and B, 1942
  • Register of Interments, Sections A and B, 1943
  • Register of Interments, Sections A and B, 1944
  • Register of Interments, Sections A and B, 1945

So hopefully they have what you're looking for. Please let us know how you get on.
