The Teochew Funeral Parlour serves to continue the Ngee Ann Kongsi’s original objectives of preserving the funeral rites of the Teochew community. It is located at 10 Ubi Road 4 and is open to members of the Teochew community as well as the general public who wish to perform funeral rites for their departed relatives.
Constructed in 1989 at a cost of $2 million, the distinctive looking yet modern building is a testament to the times. Early on, the Kongsi bought many large parcels of land in less-populated areas of the city to be used as burial grounds, with the exception of Tai Shan Ting cemetery on Orchard Road where Ngee Ann City now stands.
However, the Government acquired many pieces of land for community use. In 1989, the Government acquired the Kongsi’s cemetery on Upper Serangoon Road, necessitating the construction of a funeral parlour nearby that served the needs of the Teochews. The building consists of six halls, each with its own front veranda for use while praying and for visitors, an inner hall at the back comprising a kitchen, a bedroom and attached bathrooms.
