Hwang Chung is a village in Xinhui County as you stated so completely. It is a village of about 3000 with many industrial projects in the area. My village is just north about 50 km away. I have relatives from this area. There are cemeteries there in recent times. In the olden days you are seeking in the l9th century, there were proivate buriels in neaby mountains. If you have relatives the graves most likely will be looked after every year at Ching Ming.I do have a map of Xinhui County and it is all in Chinese. If you planned to visit you can get maps when you get to Hong Kong. I prsumerd that you are in Australia. If you are living in a city with a good number of Chinese population, you can try to contact the Kong Chow Association which is the association of Xinhui ancestry.If I could be of further help you can tact me
