On a sign in the cemetery:-
This cemetery, dating back to the 1860s, is recorded on old survey plans and in various historical records.
It was divided into two sections, European and Chinese. The remains of the Chinese were customarily exhumed and transported back to China.
The number of people buried here remains unknown. Ravages of time and interference by vandals have left only remnants of the cemetery.
