Bishan is a neighbourhood of the city-state of Singapore situated in the Central Region, measuring approximately three by three kilometres.

The burial ground was established in 1870 by immigrants who largely came from the three prefectures of Kwong Chow Fu (广州府, Cantonese), Wai Chow Fu (惠州府, Hakka) and Siew Heng Fu (肇庆府, Cantonese) in Guangdong Province, China.
