Not too far from the Dutch Square, the Dutch (British) graveyard was used as a burial site for Colonial military personnel including 5 Dutch and 33 British soldiers and their wives during the Naning War. Now, it is overgrown and not kept tidy but a cool place to visit nonetheless.

I don't know why, but it's written there The Dutch Graveyard / Kubur Belanda. Why is it written here British Graveyard? Basically it's just a graveyard, you can read the history written on the board at the entrance. It's just right next to the alley to the St. Paul Hill.

Visited this Graveyard and the history as follows In 1829, the British ruler in Malacca demanded Daerah Naning to remit their taxes amounting to 10% of their total harvests, as tribute to Malacca. The Naning ruler, Datuk Dol Said turned down the request because he feels that the Naning district is not part of Melaka. The British wage a war... More

It maybe boring for some people but I found it interesting to visit the graveyards. It is a nice experience to discover the history of Melacca. On the other hand, the graveyards is a nice place for photo taking.

As with many of the sites in Malacca, you don't really visit this one on its own. It's a piece of jigsaw that you should see in perspective of everything else. Do it as part of the historical trail by all means. Don't come here for a photo op, or to be entertained.

This is actually called the Dutch Graveyard but there are 33 British graves here comparing to only 5 Dutch ones. The graveyard was first used in the last quarter of the 17th century. The last person buried here was in 1838.
