In 1933, the government relocated the graves at the former Stanley Military Cemetery to its present location at Wong Ma Kok Road in Stanley.

The graves at the Cemetery fall into 3 categories, including those for members of the garrison between 1841 and 1870; those for internees during the Japanese Occupation (1941 – 1945); and those for soldiers and civilians who died during the Commonwealth war. The Cemetery was rated Grade 3 historic building in 2010.

Well-known for its tranquil and serene atmosphere created by the landscaped and beautifully kept surroundings, Stanley Military Cemetery is the resting place of soldiers who sacrificed their lives to protect Hong Kong in the early days. Visitors are advised to keep quiet.
