Iron Gate at Hong Kong Cemetery in Happy Valley

Hello! Does anyone know what year the iron gate on Stubbs Road that leads into Hong Kong Cemetery was built? I'm sorry I don't have a picture yet, but I'll try to find the time to take one next week. I have enquired at the Hong Kong Cemetery and the HK Museum of History, but no one knows. There is no date marked on the gate either. I would be so grateful to find out! Thanks in advance!

Places shown in this photo: 

The inscription on this battered photo proof from my family's collection needs verifying. It reads "Royal Rose, winner of the Foochow Cup."  Hong Kong Race Meeting 1914. I've seen it reproduced in one of Trea Wiltshire's books, but haven't been able to refind it.

The very recognizable figure of Sir Paul Catchick Chater can be seen leading his horse. My recollection is that Chater's horses were usually called "---- Dahlia" and that the "Rose" stable belonged to another prominent owner. The names of horses were usually changed when they changed owners.
