Location of tomb and error in burial registrar record 

Block 3 Division D, plot 468 (not to far away from the tomb of Mrs. Chia Eng Wah)
It is interesting to point out the huge error made in the burial registrar of Bukit Brown. Although the location and plot number is correct, the person buried there is Quek Meng Kee, female 30 years. This is obviously wrong. Tan Meng Kee is male and not female and of course still very much alive. The person they should have written down is Madam Yeo Chiw Say who was 30 years when she passed away.
Did the person failed to write Mrs. Quek Meng Kee ?
