With over one million burials Rookwood is the world's largest Victorian cemetery. It services over 90 different religious and cultural denominations, making is truly representative of Sydney's diversity. Over the years many famous, and sometimes infamous, people have been interred at Rookwood and this series of short bio films - titled 'Rookwood Notables' - shows four fascinating aspects of Sydney life through the stories of John Fairfax, David Jones & Anthony Hordern, Roye Rene and Mei Quong Tart.
The story of the Chinese businessman who became the darling of Sydney society operating six outstanding tea rooms and contributing to Sydney in so many ways. It is a wonderful story.
