WeiHai-Wei British Garrison Burial Ground
Weihai
Shandong  China

Cemetery notes and/or description:
Weihai (Chinese: 威海; pinyin: Wēihǎi); was known during the colonial period as the Weihai Garrison (simplified Chinese: 威海卫; traditional Chinese: 威海衛; pinyin: Wēihǎi Wi) or Weihaiwei, and sometimes as Port Edward; it is a prefecture-level city in eastern Shandong province, People's Republic of China.

The city was part of a territory (c.285 sq mi/740 km) called "Weihaiwei", which was leased by the United Kingdom from 1898 until October 1, 1930. It was a summer station for the British naval fleet in China. It became one of two major ports for ships of the Royal Navy in the Far East (the other being Hong Kong in the south). The nickname British sailors gave to this port was "Way High"; it was also sometimes referred to as Port Edward in English.

The actual location of the British Garrison Burial Ground is probably _inaccurately_ identified on the map below, due to lack of available information. Further details would be welcome.
