Chua Jin Swee

Low Kim Lian
The tomb of Chua Jin Swee and Madam Low Kim Lian are covered with vines, but fortunately, the horizontal arm of both ends contains the information of both Chua Jin Swee and Madam Low Kim Lan and that includes the name of their children.



Seh Chua (Surname Chua) 
Chua Jin Swee was part of the Seh Chua Clan or Community and became a member of the Committee in 1921. That year was an important milestone year for the Seh Chua community because the British Government was seeking to acquire the Seh Chua Burial Ground and the elected Trustees were discussing compensation in the form of new land if the acquisition took place since the Chua Community does not have a new burial after its only one at Silat Road (which was slightly more than 2 acres) was closed for burials.
