Historical Land Lot Numbers in the Greater Bukit Brown Area Mukim 17 (XVII) - Toa Payoh
From MLY - Here are the modern (as at 2013) land lot boundaries superimposed with that of Survey No. 1058's. Survey No. 1058 should in theory align exactly with Lot 25-4 and all of the pink Seh Ong cemetery lots.
Also added the old land lot numbers for the lots in BBC and the immediate adjacent lots. The Seh Ong (Taiyuan Shan) lot that was carved out to form BBC is Lot 25-4 (now MK17-99303N).
BBC is comprised of 4 lots: 25 part, 29, 30 & 33. Don't know if 25-1 meant its old no. or that it had 1 part of 25.
1) The total area of the 4 lots in 1952 = 173.625 acres (173A 2R 20P)
But in 1973, it was only 173 acres exactly, 0.625 acres were lost.
2) The area for Lot 25 part (25-1) in 1952 was 97A 3R 25P = 97.90625 acres
Lot 29 - 52 A 3 R 28 P
Lot 30 - 14 A 9 R 20 P
Lot 33 - 8 A 1 R 07 P
In 1973, the area for Lot 25-4 was 97A 2R 25P = 97.65625 acres. In 1973, the area for Lot 25-4 was short of 1 rood (0.25 acres).
The original area in the land deed was 97A 3R 25P = 97.90625 acres, same as the 1952 area.
Land Lot MK17-99303N, which encompasses BBC Blocks 1,2,3,5 has an area of 0.3981 sq km or 98.373 acres.which is acquired by the Govt from the Seh Ong Cemetery then.
Therefore Bukit Brown Municipal Cemetery include the 98 acres acquired from Seh Ong Clan, plus Blk 4, and other adjacent areas.
