Grave Exhumation

Are you affected by Grave Exhumation to make way for Tengah Air Base expansion?

As announced in the news on 2017, Singapore’s biggest public cemetery, Choa Chu Kang Cemetery, will have its size cut down by a third, from 318 ha to 200 ha. Some 80,500 Chinese and Muslim graves will be exhumed progressively to expand Tengah Air Base, which in turn is to accommodate the relocation of Paya Lebar Air Base from 2030 onward.

If the deceased and his/her family are non-religious, we usually work together with the family to arrange a service or procedure that the deceased would have preferred.
