Mrs. Tan Tock Seng, Death, March 1877, Singapore

The Straits Times, 31 March 1877, Page 4

The funeral of the late Mrs. Tan Tock Seng took place yesterday morning with more even than the usual pomp which the wealthy Chinese import into such ceremonies. At nine o'clock punctually, the coffin was placed in a magnificent state chair, covered with tapestry of rich silk and gold, and was carried by about forty bearers, the members of the deceased's family, dressed in sackcloth, walking after, a weird figure supposed to frighten away the evil spirits being in front of the procession. Silk banners gorgeously inscribed, numerous fife bands, gongs, and incense temples constituted the paraphernalia of the procession, which was about three miles long, and which wended its way slowly to the cemetery near the Passir Panjang Road, where it arrived at 11 o'clock, when the collosal figure in front was burnt at the foot of the grave, and the usual religious ceremonies performed. The numbers of Chinese and Malays, who attended to evince their respect for the memory of the deceased, prove the esteem with which both she, and her late benevolent husband were regarded in this colony.
