via The Star, 11 October 2018: Walking tours of the Protestant cemetery of Penang
The 229-year-old Protestant Cemetery in Jalan Sultan Ahmad Shah is the final resting place for many prominent personalities who contributed to the early development of George Town.
One of them was Philip Dundas who was appointed Penang’s first governor by the East India Company in 1805.
His governance lasted only two years, as he succumbed to malaria at the age of 44.
Local historian Clement Liang, who led a tour of the cemetery, said the cemetery was also home to other governors who served after him.
