Bukit Brown Cemetery, Singapore

Bukit Brown is a Chinese cemetery on Singapore island, opened in 1922 on the former estate of an Englishman named Brown and used until recent times. Some areas are now largely overgrown. The government has announced that a new road will be build through the cemetery, requiring the exhumation of more than 3,000 graves. What a terrible thing to lose.
