WHAT IS A POST FUNERAL SERVICE?

A post-funeral is a comprehensive set of services that involves the after-death care of the deceased. Most importantly, a grieving family needs to make decisions with regards to what they wish to do with the cremated remains. There are a few methods in which a family can choose to opt for when dealing with the cremated remains.

  • Sea Burial
    Sea burial is a rather common option where the family of the deceased scatter their loved ones’ remains into the sea. It is a belief that such an action helps the departed return to nature, forming an eternal resting place. Interestingly, sea burial is also a rather popular option in Singapore due to it being hassle-free and eco-friendly. Furthermore, it is also adopted as some prefer to seek freedom from physical attachments that they had held on in their lifetime.
    There are generally two ways in which a sea burial can be performed. First being the traditional method where the cremated remains are often known to be wrapped in religious cloth and scattered into the sea by family members. Second being the use of a biodegradable urn made from paper and recycled plant materials, which can store the remains and be sunk into the sea.

 

  • Inland Ash Scattering
    The Inland Ash Scattering is a new option introduced by The National Environmental Agency (NEA), which has been operational since 17 May 2021. This allows for an additional resting place for the departed and is a preferred option by those with the belief of “ashes to ashes, dust to dust”. In addition, this option is also for those who do not wish to be bound by physical niches and have reserves about being scattered into the sea.
    The Garden of Peace is known to be the first of two government managed ash-scattering facilities. It has an open garden setting with designated lanes for the scattering of cremated remains. It is also designed to provide privacy for families so as to ensure a respectful environment for the ash scattering process.

 

  • Columbarium
    A columbarium niche forms a structure where funeral urns of the departed can be stored at. According to each family’s choice, there are several types of urns that are usually available in terms of shape, size and material.
    Commonly adopted options include niche urns which are boxed or rectangular shaped due to its extreme compactness. Others also include biodegradable urns, scattering tubes and keepsake urns.

 

  • Crypt Burial System
    The National Environmental Agency (NEA) also introduced an improved version of the traditional soil burial system in 2007, being the “Crypt Burial System” in Singapore. This method allows for optimal land use where the deceased can be buried, allowing for more accessibility for visitors.
    With the endorsement of various religious bodies in Singapore, the different racial groups in the community are accommodated in terms of giving the final farewell to their loved ones. While allowing a neater burial layout, it also prevents graves from shifting due to soil movement and erosion.

Special heartfelt thanks to the team. As my mum passed away from sudden heart attack and it was already very very late... at night and after being asked about the body handling method as i was being led to register for a death certificate at the hospital, i was in a total state of confusion. I hadn’t even recovered from the upsetting news but am having to make decision on behalf of my late mother. as i sat at the counter after 5 mins, I decided i will drop Jeffery a message to see if he could take up this case. He called back immediately which was very appreciated and provided guidance in handling the procedure and arrived pretty quickly at the hospital.The team really guided me along the entire funeral and they were a very polite, approachable team. The setup was also very nicely done, and had gained many compliments from my relatives who attended the wake, with most saying they were very impressed.Once again, many thanks to Jeffrey , Guan Yin and Alouysius for all the help rendered during this difficult period for me and my dad.read more

A pleasant experience with Embrace Funeral Services team in the midst of shock, chaos & loss of a loved one. Jeffrey's... dad stepped in to help me at the hospital while Jeffrey was engaged with another client. Both Jeffrey and dad guided me every step of the journey with good questions and recommendations.I was very impressed with the efficiency and professional complete set up of the memorial hall (including embalming, make-up and dress up of my late father) within a short 2 hours. The hall was serene, pleasant and simple, just as I had wanted.Sea burial amidst rain and choppy water was also carried out professionally by Jeffrey's dad and assistant. Again we were guided to say final goodbye with a prayer of exaltation before lowering the bones into the ocean.Jeffrey's team helped to capture the final journey with photographs of significant moments, without me asking.I am thankful for the helpful reviews by others that I could meet such a professional funeral director. I hope my review here will help others select an undertaker team who is helpful, competent and professional while grieving.God bless.read more
