This chapter discusses the merchant navy officers, owners, and their families who are buried in the Hong Kong Cemetery. The officers of the merchant navy vessels were considered to be the life blood of early Hong Kong, and they were responsible for providing the merchants with their goods. They were also tasked with bringing drinks, foodstuffs, and furnishings that were considered essential to the European's way of life. Some officers who worked for the Peninsular and Oriental Steam Navigation Company Line are discussed as well.
