Chinese cemeteries, found in various locations in Malaysia, are like historical landmarks.
The oldest graves when traced may be used to gauge the association between the Chinese with a particular locality. Such a consideration is important as the community was constantly required to justify and defend its long-standing presence in the country especially in the face of challenges from certain quarters of indigenous political groups which questioned the long term position of the Chinese in the country. Given its importance, this paper sets out to examine the three earliest cemeteries, namely, Bukit China in Malacca, the Chinese cemeteries in Terengganu and Mount Erskine in Penang; with the aim of tracing the earlier graves and to raise questions pertaining to their existence.
These cemeteries, found in various locations, are like historical landmarks. By tracing the oldest graves they may be used to gauge the association between the Chinese with a particular locality. Such a consideration is important as the community was constantly required to justify and defend its long-standing presence in the country especially in the face of challenges from certain quarters of indigenous political groups which labelled the Chinese as Pendatang , or immigrants and questioned their claims to citizenship and political rights.
To date, several efforts are being carried out to document Chinese cemeteries, including their establishment, their actual condition, details of their size, and in some cases, the number of graves they contain. More recently, these activities have become more urgent in view of the decisions of several local governments to re-enter or reclaim the land allotted for burial sites where the land tenure of the cemeteries has come to an end. Studies on the subject often have been selective and brief, often repetitive or reproductions of earlier works. Therefore, many of them do not help to answer some important questions which may be crucial for more comprehensive understanding of the development of cemeteries.
One crucial question is, why does the earliest Chinese grave still in situ date back only to the early 17th century or later? If the links with China indeed date back to the era of the Ming voyages if not earlier, then what happened to the Chinese who passed away in Malacca? Where were they buried?

While the article may not be able to provide direct answers, it will hopefully raise additional questions for discussion. It covers materials from temples, guilds, schools, other institutions, and cemeteries which are the main source of information. As regards cemeteries, the compendium provides background information on some of the major cemeteries including a selection of the oldest tombstones. However, as the work was conceived as a corpus, further discussions on cemeteries were not pursued.
Even though the work is by no means exhaustive, it offers some useful basic information on the early Chinese burial grounds and oldest and unique graves. Though the volume is small compared to that of Franke and Chen, it brought some information not found in the former. The volume also includes some material on Chinese burial customs as well as a discussion of the various laws that governed the administration of burial grounds and cemeteries.

It provides perspectives on the ongoing debates relating to Chinese cemeteries in Malaysia at the time their existence was endangered. There has been a strong emphasis on challenges faced by Chinese organisations out to preserve their cemeteries, especially in the face of the lure of commercial considerations to let go of their burial grounds in return for financial gains, and the need to defend the heritage value of the cemeteries.
It must be pointed out that when most of the Chinese cemeteries were started in the past, they were usually situated in the outskirts of the urban areas. After so many decades and even centuries, in some places of rapid urbanisation these cemeteries are now located in the heart of the cities. Therefore, their lands cost considerably more thus the on-going debate on whether to sell or redevelop or to preserve, as well as exploring the question of alternate ways of burying the dead. The questions on the earlier graveyards and on the need to identify the earliest tombs were largely left unanswered.
Right in the heart of the Malacca City, it has been the subject of many academic as well as political and commercial interests. One of the recurrent questions has been whether or not it dates back to the time of the Malaccan Empire of the 15th and 16th centuries, when Chinese traders frequented the port. Where were they buried when they died in Malacca? We have no idea of this, perhaps on Bukit China? In his study of the voyages of Admiral Zheng He, especially the Ming ties with the Malaccan Sultanate, Geoff Wade suggested that there were Chinese military garrisons stationed in Malacca as well as several other strategic points on the Straits of Malacca, with the purpose of keeping the straits free from piracy and also from other threats.
Perhaps, but there are no traces left. It is likely that their humble graves, without stone structures, did not survive the test of time. It was reported that the princess was accompanied by more than men and women as her entourage, and perhaps it was through these men and women, when passing on, that the cemetery was established. The earliest surviving tombstones however, yielded a much later date, that of the 17th century. There could have been some tombs from earlier periods, perhaps even from the time of the Malaccan Empire.
However, they are now lost to history. According to Kunshan, it was more than 60 years since burials had been carried out on the hill, and a temple was needed to shelter the devotees from rain during their annual visit.
