Hong Kong Cemetery Damaged By Historical Typhoons & Landslides

Submitted by Orestes on Thu, 01/19/2023 - 07:32

I've been doing research on the Hong Kong Cemetery and the whereabouts of my great grandfather's remains.  Samuel Osborne Pickthorne died in Hong Kong Habour while on the ship he was the Chief Steward, on March 25, 1900 and records show he was buried in Section 4 of the cemetery.

However, records show that when his gravesite was exhumed (because there wasn't a grave marker for his site), no remains were found.

Old Graves in Ping Shan New Territories

Submitted by pingshan on Mon, 08/15/2016 - 04:32


I'm looking for photos or other material taken in the Ping Shan of the New Territories before 1980. My family had an ancestral memorial (graves) there, within walking distance of Old Ping Shan police station. It was exhumed owing to the development of Hong Kong in the late 80's or so.

The location of the original site has been lost. I would like to collect more images and information of the surrounding area at the time, for the benefit of future generations.
