Our Story

Arriving from Nan’an County in Quanzhou, Fujian province, our founder, Mr. Ang See Karr saw the need for quality and essential funeral services for the Chinese community in Singapore. A humble shop at Upper Pickering Street opposite the old Police Headquarters was subsequently founded and under the name “Ang Chin Huat Casket”, funerary services for the Chinese communities began. At the point of founding in 1912, we are one of the few funeral companies in Singapore. Indeed, Ang Chin Huat Casket is an early pioneer of the funeral profession that gradually evolved to become a one-stop funeral service in Singapore.

Our Milestones

Our milestones include the grooming of Singapore’s first female embalmer in 1990, the setting up of Western Casket in 2000 to cater to the needs of the Christian community. Flying Home was also set up for the repatriation needs of Singaporeans and foreign nationals.


In 2010, the fourth-generation owner of Ang Chin Moh Funeral Directors, Mr. Ang Ziqian successfully got the lease of the disused Mount Vernon Columbarium site. Following extensive renovations, the disused crematorium was turned into Mount Vernon Sanctuary, offering 6-star funeral service halls for grieving families and other funeral directors.


Mr Ang Ziqian saw the need to dispel the fears and taboos surrounding dying, death, and funerals through public education. He set up the Ang Chin Moh Foundation in 2012 to focus its through philanthropic causes, public education, research, and heritage preservation.
