A beautiful western style marble tomb in Hill 2 close to the tar road will definitely draw your attention. It is engraved in English in a unique cursive font. It is the tomb of Madam Tan Poh Choo who was born on the 8th December 1878 and departed this life on the 24th June 1927. This tablet is erected by her sons and daughters. The name of her sons are Wee Swee Chiang, Wee Teck Seng,Wee Cheng Seng, Wee Swee Seng  and daughter; Wee Siew Hoon. Madam Tan Poh Choo is buried in Hill 2 Division A, plot  52. Her age was listed as 52.

Unfortunately other than the above, i have no further details at the moment. However the tomb mason that erected this tomb was called Ravensway & Co.
