To honour those who served their country

“In this their finest hour”


Hong Kong Saint Michaels Catholic Cemetery



Throughout the First World War, Hong Kong was garrisoned by local defence and Commonwealth forces.

During the Second World War, Hong Kong fell to Japanese forces on Christmas Day 1941 following a brief but intense period of fighting.  Most of those buried or commemorated on the island were killed at this time, or died later as internees or prisoners of war during the Japanese occupation.

This civil cemetery contains seven First World War burials and nine from the Second World War.

The cemetery is on the west side of Wong Nei Chong Road, opposite the Happy Valley Racecourse.

This cemetery contains seven Commonwealth burials from the First World War and nine from the Second World War.
