No.6348, Hong Kong Cemetery / 香港墳場「6348」無字碑
New

The stele with no name for Yang Qu-yun 楊衢雲「無字碑」
Wong Nai Chong Road, Happy Valley 跑馬地黃泥涌道


Location: Hong Kong Cemetery, Happy Valley, Hong Kong Island 香港墳場「6348」無字碑
Film: Bodyguards and Assassins 十月圍城 (2009) / Dir: Teddy Chen 陳德森


香 港墳場,又稱為紅毛墳場,於1845年正式開放,為香港開埠早期成立的墳場之一。
早年埋葬該處的都是英國人及日本人,直到1913年才有華人。
置地創辦人 遮打 (Catchick Paul Chater)、當時的首富何東 (Robert Ho Tung) 與其元配麥秀英、
行政局及立法局華人議員何啟 (Ho Kai) 均葬於此。從墳場入口向右轉,一直行至盡頭,再沿石級往上走,
便會看見一塊鼎鼎大名的無字碑「6348」,在這塊碑下,埋葬了一位與孫中山 (Sun Yat-sen) 齊名,

興中會第一任會長楊衢雲 ( Yang Qu-yun )。楊氏參與過1895年的廣州起義及1900年的
惠州起義, 但兩次都以失敗告終。
自此以後,楊氏於上環結志街52號設私塾輔仁文社教授英文。
1901年 1月10日,楊氏於其私塾的2樓寓所內被清廷派出之刺客陳林開槍刺殺,
這便是電影《十月圍城》(Bodyguards and Assassins) 片首那幕,片中的楊衢雲由張學友
(Jacky Cheung) 飾演。楊氏被殺後,港英政府為免開罪清廷,楊氏的下葬安排也只能低調。
楊氏於輔仁文社的伙伴謝贊泰為他安排下葬於香港墳場,並為他設計墓碑,
以天圓地方概 念設計,刻有青天白日圖案,以象徵楊氏的革命精神。

The Hong Kong Cemetery is one of the early Christian cemeteries of Hong Kong. It was opened in 1845. In the beginning, the cemetery was uniquely for the burial of British and Japanese nationals. Since 1913, the burial of Chinese citizen was allowed in this cemetery. A lot of celebrities were buried here. Under an unnamed stele (6348) lays Yang Qu-Yun, the first president of the ‘Revive China’ Society. Yang participated in the Guangzhou uprising in 1895 and the Huizhou uprising in 1900. After the failure of both uprisings, Yang taught English in a private school at No.52 Gage Street. On 10th January 1901, he was murdered on the 2nd floor of the private school by an assassin sent by the Qing Court.
Why are we detailing this historical fact? This is the starting scene of Bodyguards and Assassins in which Jacky Cheung stars as Yang. To avoid offending the Qing court, the Hong Kong government ordered a low-profile burial for Yang. Yang’s friend buried him in this very Hong Kong cemetery.

Hennessey Road is one of the main roads of Wan Chai district, and splits it into two sections: The northern section is the newest and boasts high-end hotels and the international convention and exhibition center. The southern and oldest section consists mostly in old houses and various kinds of shops. The latter is where the film is set.
Actress Tang Wei lived more than two months there during production, spending the day preparing and shooting the scene, then eating at neighborhood restaurants in the evening.
In Crossing Hennessy, Loy (Jacky Cheung) and Oi-lin (Tang Wei) live in different sections of the road. The title of the film refers to the act of crossing the street as a mark of showing one’s feeling for the other. In the beginning, Loy is adamant and cannot cross to Oi-lin’s side of the road.
