Introduction to Cemeteries and Crematoria Services

The Department provides to the public services on cremation and burial of body and skeletal remains. It operates six government crematoria (at Cape Collinson in Hong Kong Island, Diamond Hill in Kowloon, Fu Shan, Kwai Chung, Wo Hop Shek and Cheung Chau in the New Territories) and eight public columbaria (at Cape Collinson in Hong Kong Island, Diamond Hill in Kowloon, Fu Shan, Kwai Chung, Wo Hop Shek, Cheung Chau, Lamma Island and Peng Chau in the New Territories). Moreover, the Department runs 11 Gardens of Remembrance in the eight columbaria.

The Department also manages ten public cemeteries, namely Hong Kong Cemetery, Mount Caroline Cemetery, New Kowloon Cemetery No. 8 (Diamond Hill Urn Cemetery), Prison Cemetery (Stanley), Wo Hop Shek Cemetery, Cheung Chau Cemetery, Tai O Cemetery, Lai Chi Yuen Cemetery and two cemeteries in Sandy Ridge.

Coffin burial spaces are available in Wo Hop Shek Cemetery, Cheung Chau Cemetery, Tai O Cemetery and Lai Chi Yuen Cemetery. However, for coffin burial in Cheung Chau Cemetery, Tai O Cemetery or Lai Chi Yuen Cemetery, the applicant must produce the original and a copy of letter from the relevant islands rural committee and a statutory declaration made by the legal representative or next of kin of the decreased person to certify that the deceased was an indigenous villager, a bona fide resident of the island concerned, or their minor children.
