Searching for clues to an heir in Bukit Brown >

The search for Madam Wan’s descendants has included tombstone inspections at the Bukit Brown cemetery, a listing on the Government Gazette and a newspaper advertisement last month.

Mr Lee and Mr Goh will do a further search of court records and then approach the High Court for an order to distribute the money among those who come forward by Jan 1.

​This is a bit of a personal anedcote as my great grandfather’s tomb is one of the featured tombstones in the article. 

My relatives did file a claim but it got rejected because they weren’t considered to be related closely enough.
