Reminiscent of our Heritage & Pride

We too, have our first.

Old Showroom of AYS Office

Ang Yew Seng Funeral Parlour had its beginnings in the early 70s. Brightly lit and modern for its time, the office utilised wooden furnishing to blend contemporary with tradition. The heirlooms collected and displayed by Ang Yew Seng also established that he is an old hand in the funeral trade. Having been brought up and trained in the industry starting from a young age, it allowed him to gain experience beyond his years. This is the foundation his company was built upon.

First Hearse
Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery

A proper funeral company is not without a hearse. Ang Yew Seng Funeral Parlour first received our hearse in the late 70s, allowing for us to send clients off in dignity for their final farewell. Seen pictured here in action at Kong Meng San Phor Kark See Monastery, our first hearse is reminiscent of the 80s it was used in. Dressed in black and with a large body, the hearse takes its solemn task of delivering caskets arounds seriously.

Ang Yew Seng Funeral Parlour has since updated its inventory, upgrading to newer models to reflect the current era. While we pride ourselves on our tradition and heritage, we are not stuck in the past and will continue to modernise to provide the best for our clients.

Old Office

Ang Yew Seng Funeral Parlour boasted a humble office. With its simple facilities, it served as a meeting point for the community. To give the people a semblance of privacy, the office forgoed clear windows and chose dark-screened ones instead so as to avoid prying eyes. On the inside, it used a lot of traditional furnishing and decoration that reflected the Chinese heritage of the community it belonged to and served.

    First Look of the Parlour

    Ang Yew Seng Funeral Parlour found its humble origins in Sin Ming. With a large deck that extended the premises, the parlour could host a large number of mourners at any one time. The Chinese-styled decorations and colour scheme gave the parlour its more traditional vibe, that created the warm atmosphere that the clients enjoyed.

    1st Look after renovation

    Nestled in the heart of the Central Region, the quaint Ang Yew Seng Funeral Parlour remains true to its roots, fusing intricately designed artifacts and embroidery. A rich hybrid of traditions and modern contemporary touch.

  • A refurbished and decorated parlour for an elegant yet pristine atmosphere

    2nd Look after renovation

    The new and improved Ang Yew Seng Funeral Parlour puts a contemporary spin on the traditional space by contrasting cool marble tiles with warm wood wall panelling. The result is an ambience of both sophistication and comfort, a place where the grieving can enter and feel right at home, yet still experience a style and elegance unique to our thoughtfully designed parlour.

    Final Look after renovation

    Deciding to go for a inner sanctuary look, the latest design features dark wood for its walls and marble tiles. This is to compliment the highlight of the Ang Yew Seng Funeral Parlour, a huge, gorgeous LED screen. The light that it emits thus reflects beautifully off the polished ground, brightening  up both the space but also the ambiance. This hopefully imbues patrons with feelings of hope and comfort that will follow them through the rest of their lives.
