Timothy Tye's Travel Encyclopedia
Cemeteries in Penang



Agoda booking


There are many cemeteries scattered throughout Penang Island and Seberang Perai. These include old Malay graveyards which may even pre-date the arrival of Captain Francis Light to the island. The oldest known cemetery in Penang is the Protestant Cemetery and its adjacent Catholic Cemetery. They are the final resting place for many of the earlier British pioneers including Francis Light himself.

The Malays have been living in estuarine settlements in Penang even before the arrival of Francis Light. They may have established Muslim graveyards around their settlements, such as the graveyard in Minden Heights where Dato Jenaton has his grave. The influx of Chinese to the island also resulted in many cemeteries being created. Today Chinese cemeteries are the largest on the island. The Hokkiens, being the predominant Chinese ethnic group in Penang, has the largest cemeteries. These are managed by UHC or United Hokkien Cemeteries.

This page provides a listing of cemeteries as well as graveyards, columbariums and mausoleums in Penang. I also add crematoriums and funeral parlours to this list, as they are related. I have also created a list of the Cemeteries in Malaysia.
