I thought you might be interested to know of a new resource that has just been launched and we are very lucky that it is completely free on a Hong Kong history website.They say:"The database was compiled as part of Patricia Lim's research for her recent book. She has generously agreed to make it publicly available, and to let us publish a copy here on www.gwulo.com."
Patricia has produced a book'Forgotten Souls: A Social History of the Hong Kong Cemetery'. It's not about the cemetery though, instead it looks at the lives of the people buried there. Here's a sample of sections chapter headings to give a flavour:
Section II: The Early Denizens of the Hong Kong Cemetery, 1845–1860 4: Merchants, Clerks and Bankers 5: Servants of the Crown 6: Professionals 7: The Merchant Navy 8: Tradesmen, Artisans and Small-Scale Businessmen 9: Beachcombers and the Destitute 10: Missionaries 11: The Americans 12: The Armed Forces 13: Women and Children 14: The Chinese and Their Position in Relation to the Europeans
However, the database gives the complete listing of those buried at the Hong Kong Protestant cemetery (which is somewhere in the region of 6000+ graves), along with inscriptions and plot numbers.The database itself is still very much being developed, but you can search for names here using this link http://gwulo.com/node/8738http://gwulo.com/node/8738.Make a note of the plot number, then look up the plot to find the inscription here:
