COVID-19 is a global pandemic that affects us all and Singaporeans are no exception. Government regulations has limited the number of persons allowed at funeral wakes, be it at homes, at void decks or at the funeral parlours. As of 8th April 2020, the number of persons allowed at all the 3 crematoriums in Singapore is limited to 10.
Singapore Funeral Sanctuary is dedicated to support Singaporeans in this critical season by providing funeral packages designed to provide a dignified send off in the safest way possible.We strongly urge Singaporeans to practice social responsibility and to avoid attending funeral wakes if unwell. At Singapore Funeral Sanctuary, your safety is of utmost importance to us.
Measures we have taken in this season includes but are not limited to:
Compulsory filling up of declaration form for contact tracing purposes
Temperature taking for attendees. Those whose temperature are above the threshold would not be permitted to enter the wake premise
Provision of sanitizes to reduce surface contamination by bacteria to a safe level
Our funeral packages during this period has complimentary live stream services of the funeral procession to allow distraught family members who are unable to fly back to Singapore a chance to participate in the funeral process.
Given the limitations on the number of persons allowed at the funeral wake venues, some families may decide to opt for a direct cremation altogether.
A direct funeral consists of:
Collection of decedent from place of death
Viewing of decedent at embalming care centre
Transport of decedent to crematorium/burial ground
Live stream of the funeral process
Video montage of the entire funeral process
Usually this can be conducted within a day or two, subjected to the crematorium's availability. We also understand how COVID-19 has affected most of us economically and hence priced this package as affordable as it can be.
As interview by Lian He Zao Bao, Singapore Funeral Sanctuary believes during this difficult time, it is not ethical to charge our clients additional cost for Live streaming services due to COVID-19. We have tailored our packages to meet client's expectation and needs with compassion towards all our funeral services.
Singapore Funeral Sanctuary has also made arrange for installment plans to families that are financially impacted by COVID-19. We urge clients to take up our interest free installment plans offered so families do not have to compromise traditional funeral rites and opt for "Direct cases funeral" for loved ones. At Singapore Funeral Sanctuary, we believe everyone deserves a dignified and honorable final journey.
