About Us

Obituaries.sg is a subsidiary of S. Jordan Advertising Pte Ltd which is accredited with SPH and is today the only advertising agency in Singapore specialising entirely in handling obituaries.

Our roots dates back to the 1980s where the company was founded. Through the years of dedication, we have been providing families reliable assistance and professional advice in writing and have handled over 15,000 obituaries in the Straits Times, 联合早报,新明日报 and 联合晚报 till date.

As digital disruption accelerates, Obituaries.sg was founded in 2014 to complement our existing workflow. Families can now conveniently place obituaries either on print or online through this website.

The Team

Hi, I'm Jordan Xiao

Jordan Xiao has been in the obituary industry for the 12 years and took over the family business in 2014, when his father retired. His father is the pioneer in this industry with 30 years of experience before stepping down.

Since then, he has tirelessly improved the business in all aspects while maintaining the philosophies and virtues set by his father. He has transited from handwritten obituaries to preparing in real time the actual artwork in front of families and also pushed and created new boundaries of layout and design from traditional obituaries. With the digital age already here, he aims to provide families with a platform where obituaries can achieve more.
