This chapter discusses the history of the freemasons in Hong Kong by looking at the Freemason symbols found on the graves of the members. There are, however, some freemasons who opted not to include the Freemason symbol on their gravestones. It looks at the first recorded activity of the Freemasons, which was in April 1845, until the late nineteenth century.
