History

A coffin home was established by the Man Mo Temple for the public near the Slaughter House in Kennedy Town in 1875 to provide temporary sanctuary for Chinese after they had passed away. It was then transferred to Tung Wah Hospital and was rebuilt near Sandy Bay in 1899. The compound was then formerly named "Tung Wah Coffin Home". There are 2 halls, 72 columbarium and 1 coffin home which can store a maximum of 300 coffins and provide 6,733 urn spaces.
