East India Company Cemetery

Local nameOld Protestant Cemetery
LocationZhuhai, China

The Old Protestant Cemetery is a cemetery in Santo António, Macau, China. It was established by the British East India Company in 1821 in Portuguese Macau in response to a lack of burial sites for Protestants in the Roman Catholic Portuguese colony.

It is the last resting place of the artist George Chinnery, missionaries Robert Morrison and Samuel Dyer, Royal Navy captain Henry John Spencer-Churchill and US Naval Lieutenant Joseph Harod Adams. Humphrey Fleming Senhouse, a captain in the Royal Navy, is also buried here.

In 2005, the cemetery was officially enlisted as part of the UNESCO World Heritage Site Historic Center of Macau.
