Grave of my Great Grand father

My Great Grand Father

We know from a court case in 1939 that my great grand father is not buried in this grave. He lived and died in China. But his son and my grandfather, Yap Swee placed this tombstone in Ipoh as he did not travel back to China. Apparently Yap Swee placed a silver dish here as a mark of respect to his ancestor.
