Ancestor Relocation

Moving to a new eternal abode - A continuation of filial piety and love

"Ancestor Relocation", is the ritual of exhuming remains for the purposes of reinternment in a different location. In Yin House Feng Shui, is regarded as an act of honoring the deceased with an auspicious funeral in a more favorable environment and also blessed with excellent Feng Shui.

Ancestor Relocation ceremonies are carried out as a mark of respect for our ancestors.

Technically, it relocates our ancestors to a Feng Shui optimized environment for added prosperity for posterity. It is believed that the descendants will also enjoy blessing and fortune bestow upon by their Ancestors.

Why is it done?

The following reasons explain the need to perform the Ancestor Relocation ceremony:

​完成心愿

Fulfilling a wish

例如早期祖先们从中国南来我国讨生活,原本想衣锦归乡,却不幸客死异乡。子女或相亲为完成祖先的遗愿,便会择日,然后运回中国故乡重新择地下葬。

Ancestor who migrated to seek their fortunes and eventually passed away in distant lands may have expressed their wish to have their remains returned to their homeland to be laid to rest.

地契

Lease

有些骨灰塔或土地地契快到期。

Some niches or land lease expiring soon.

天地灾害

Natural disasters

规划建设不当的义山或墓园,面对排水不佳的问题,再加上保值不良,雨季时就很容易发生土崩,造成坟墓崩塌断裂或棺木移位。这种情况不得不为先人拾金迁葬。

Cemetery with improper planning and poor management are prone to drainage problems. These issues may result in landslides, causing retaining walls to collapse and tombs to shift. in such situations, an Ancestor Relocation ceremony is required.

尽孝重建

A display of filial piety

一些人的祖坟老旧破损,为了重建新墓,让后代子孙能够永远祭拜追思,于是会选择为祖先择日拾金迁葬。

Ancestor graves that are dilapidated due to aging may require an Ancestor Relocation ceremony in order to preserve and honour the memory of their loved ones in a more presentable setting.

方便祭拜

Logistic convenience

由于祖先或 亲人都各葬一方,每逢清明节许多人被迫东奔西跑,到不同地方去扫墓。于是,现代人会考虑将祖坟集中迁葬于一处,不仅让后代子孙方便祭拜,也易于永远记得墓址。

Given the fact that our ancestors are occasionally not laid to rest at the same location, this usually creates logistic issues during Qing Ming. By relocating their ancestor to a single location, it makes it easier for descendants to do the praying.

风水不佳

Unfavourable Feng Shui

隂尸地泡水穴、煞地等情况。可能有严重形煞冲射无法化解等的墓地风水问题。很多人在发生严重破财损人丁事故后,才恍然大悟发现祖坟有问题,这时必须亡羊补牢,不可不慎。

Graves are located in sites with unfavourable Feng Shui would adversely affect the descendants. To rectify this, an Ancestor Relocation ceremony has to be performed.

Are you affected by Grave Exhumation to make way for Tengah Air Base expansion?

Singapore biggest and only active public cemetery – Choa Chu Kang Cemetery will be downsize by a third, from 318ha to 200ha.

Some 80,500 Chinese and Muslim graves will be exhumed progressively to expand Tengah Air Base, which in turn is to accommodate the relocation of Payer Lebar Air Base from 2030 onwards.

Family members who are affected by the grave exhumation can choose to relocate the remains of their loved one at government columbarium or at our Singapore Nirvana Memorial Garden, located nearby at Old Choa Chu Kang Road.

Due to space constraints, the Government imposed in 1998 a burial period of 15 years for all graves in Choa Chu Kang, after which the remains would be exhumed and relocate.
