Protestant Cemetery information
Under a canopy of magnolia trees you’ll find the graves of Captain Francis Light and many others, including governors, merchants, sailors and Chinese Christians who fled the Boxer Rebellion in China (a movement opposing Western imperialism and evangelism), only to die of fever in Penang. Also here is the tomb of Thomas Leonowens, the young officer who married Anna – the schoolmistress to the King of Siam, made famous by The King and I .
For the stories behind the gravestones, consider picking up the informative brochure 'George Town's Northam Road Protestant Cemetery', available at the Penang Heritage Trust or the George Town World Heritage Inc. Headquarters .
