Old Protestant Cemetery, Macau

The Old Protestant Cemetery was established by the British East India Company in 1821 in Macau in response to a lack of burial sites for Protestants in the Roman Catholic Portuguese colony. It is the last resting place of the artist George Chinnery, missionaries Robert Morrison and Samuel Dyer, Royal Navy captain Henry John Spencer-Churchill, US Naval Lieutenant Joseph Harod Adams, Humphrey Fleming Senhouse... In 2005, the cemetery was officially enlisted as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Historic Center of Macau. 
Many thanks to Dennis!
