Follow the signs from Stanley and a 10-15 minute walk along Wong Ma Kok Rd from the bus terminus will bring you to the cemetery on your left. The small cemetery is well kept and very quiet, overlooked by the rather ominous neighboring prison, but nice to visit. Found the headstones that had been created by prisoners/internees to be interesting and different from other CWGC locations around the world.

It is a beautiful part of Hong Kong that has a large patch of Green, a novelty in Hong Kong. It is very well preserved since 1841. It is worth visit this cemetery to pay respect to all the brave man and woman who fall down during the Second World War. It also buried victims who died inside the concentration camps. Each tomb stone tells a story. Stanley is one of the most popular tourist attraction but most will neglect this place, which is very unfortunate. But I cannot blame the tourist because the cemetery is not easily access and has no signage. One of the best kept secret.

I am embarrassed to say that as a long time Hong Kong resident I had never visited Stanley Military Cemetery until early September this year. Anyone interested in how Hong Kong fared in the Second World War should visit this cemetery just outside Stanley. It is notable for the graves of civilian internees , many of fairly advanced age, who died during internment. Also it is seldom that you see a headstone inscribed to 'Fourteen Soldiers of the 1939-45 War . One grave to be sought out is that of Capt MA Ansari of the 7th Rajputs, who was captured in the fall of Hong Kong and tortured by the Japanese, who tried to persuade him to join the Indian National Army and fight against the British. He refused despite all the pain inflicted upon him and was subsequently executed. He was awarded the George Cross - the ultimate award for someone who did not die 'in action'. As always the cemetery is immaculately maintained by the CWGC. Allow at least an hour for this visit.

This is a place that people should go to if they have time to pay their respects to the people who made the ultimate sacrifice and also to the men, women and children who died in the interment camp.Best to read up about it on the internet before you go.

This is one of the highlights of coming to Stanley but it is a few minutes walk out of town (one of the buses comes passed here I think) . The cemetery is on a hillside overlooking the sea and it is very interesting to read the many inscriptions and to understand why many of the graves are roughly hewn. It is a place to sit and contemplate. The only problem is there are no seats as such and no shade. If you come here I suggest you visit St Stephen's Beach just across the road for some peace and refreshment.
