Qing Ming or Cheng Beng is observed where there are Chinese graves or communities throughout Asia, including of course China. This year, the date for Qing Ming is 4th or 5th of April, but traditionally, the family can perform the grave rituals anytime 2 weeks before and after that date.

This slide-show documents  some of the activity related to this important Chinese custom that is now in progress at Bt Brown, which is acknowledged to be the world’s largest Chinese cemetery outside of China. For some of the families shown in the photos, it could be the last time that they will have the opportunity to perform this ritual at their ancestor’s grave at Bt Brown.
