Sai Wan War Cemetery ​

Among those buried at Sai Wan War Cemetery are 33 Australians and one New Zealander. These individuals were brought to Hong Kong  for burial from theatres across the Pacific. We have produced a guide to these graves that includes information about these service personnel. Hard copies will be available at the cemetery while stocks last. You can also download the guide in PDF form for printing, or for use on mobile devices, or view it online.
