|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
On the MAP tab, the cemetery location is indicated correctly on the map view but IS NOT CORRECT on the satellite view, because of misalignment between the two modes. Look for basketball courts for matching location.
The Royal Naval Cemetery was located on the island of Liu-kung-tao (now Liugong) as part of the region of Weihai-Wei, a territory leased by Britain from Empire of China from 1898 to 1930.
The leased territory covered 288 square miles and included the bay of Wei-hai-wei (a fine natural harbour), Liu-kung-tao Island (now Liugong) and a mainland area of 72 miles of coastline running to a depth of 10 miles inland.
It is unknown at what point the cemetery was destroyed, but it may have been long before the wholesale destruction of other foreign cemeteries during the Cultural Revolution.
