  • Northam road protestant cemetery is the oldest Protestant Cemetery in penang, was built in 1786 and was used one year later. Francis light, the influential British people in penang is also buried here. This funeral stopped accepting bodies in the 18th century. Cornelia josephine van someren became the last person was buried here in 1892. One interesting things that can be observed from this cemetery is the average occupants died at a young age, simply give an overview of the rigors of life at that time, including the attack of malaria epidemic that hit penang. Because the Protestant Cemetery in penang transferred to western road, practically it so not groomed. It is said that before the restoration, the northam cemetery so favorite places the Compactor to hide. New in the year 2012, northam road protestant cemetery can be visited and purged again. definitely a hidden gem in the heart of georgetown
