Best Funeral Services in Singapore

The 29 Best Funeral Services in Singapore

Organising the funeral of a friend or loved one isn’t easy, especially when you’re dealing with grief yourself. In cases like this, it’s better to let funeral homes take care of everything to give yourself some room for grief.

Today, we’re looking at the funeral homes known for arranging the best funeral services in Singapore. We know how important it is to give a loved one a proper funeral, so we took our time going through them before coming up with our recommendations.

We’ll also go over how much funeral services typically cost here in Singapore to help you prepare for the expenses.

The Cost of Funeral Services in Singapore

The overall expenses for a funeral service in Singapore mainly depends on its length and the religion of the deceased. As expected, the longer the funeral service is, the higher the overall cost will be.

Based on our research, the thing about funeral services in Singapore is that they can either be extremely cheap or ridiculously expensive. You have just to find the right funeral home with reasonable prices.

Generally, a funeral service already comes with a room, an appropriate set of decoration, casket, chairs and tables, lighting, fans, and flowers. Expect to pay around $4,000 to $7,500 for an entire funeral service.

We found that religious funerals may cost more because the ceremonial items and personnel needed to facilitate the ritual. For example, the cost of a two-day Taoist funeral may shoot all the way up to $8,300 because of the added decorations.

On the other hand, non-religious funerals are cheaper,  commonly costing around $3,000 to $4,000 for obvious reasons.

Anyway, here’s a breakdown of the average cost of funeral services in Singapore according to religion and length:

Funeral Type2 days3 days4 days5 days6 days1 week
Christian$4,500$4,750$5,250$5,450$5,500$5,900
Roman Catholic$4,500$4,750$5,300$5,450$5,550$5,900
Buddhist$5,600$6,000$6,400$6,700$7,000$7,300
Taoist$8,300$8,600$9,400$9,700$9,900
Soka$4,600$5,000$5,300$5,600$5,800
Non-religious$4,000$4,700$5,100$5,500$5,800$6,200

Keep in mind that these are the average prices of funeral services where a funeral director is involved.

If you want a cheaper option, then opt for a funeral service with no funeral director, but expect that you’ll do all the legwork, from securing a funeral permit down to sourcing a casket, flowers, and decoration.

The Best Funeral Services in Singapore

If you want to give a loved one or a friend a funeral that they deserve, here’s our list of trusted funeral homes in Singapore that can help:

OPERATING HOURSCall their hotline for more details

As suggested by its name, Empathy Funeral Services puts itself into the shoes of a grieving family to ensure that the funeral service will be as hassle-free and convenient as possible.

Every family will be able to take their time to grief because Empathy Funeral Services will take care of everything related to the funeral, down to details as small as the type of flowers and decorations used.

Aside from arranging the funeral, Empathy will handle the post-funeral services as well, something that not a lot of funeral homes do.

Empathy Funeral Services is open to arrange the funeral of everyone, regardless of the deceased’s religious belief, even if he didn’t adhere to a certain one.

We like that Empathy has an in-house team that handles everything, so the price is kept as low as possible. In contrast, it’s common for other funeral homes to outsource its services, resulting in higher funeral costs because of middlemen fees.

Empathy is upfront when it comes to pricing too, so what appears on the quotation will be largely similar to your final bill. No grieving family will be tricked with last-minute charges and hidden fees.

For those who want to prepare for the death of a loved one, Empathy can help with that as well. It offers funeral pre-planning to families with old and terminally ill members.

Pros

  • Transparent fees
  • Competitive pricing
  • Open to any religious belief
  • Comprehensive funeral package

Cons

  • Unclear office hours

It’s not uncommon to overspend for the funeral and burial of a loved one or friend, but that’s unlikely to happen if Filial Piety Funeral Services has your back. We like that it takes the time to educate families on which funeral aspect to prioritise over the others.

However, what’s going to be included in the funeral package remains your decision, but rest assured that Filial Piety will help you every step of the way to maximise your resources.

Nirvana Memorial Garden is a one-stop funeral company that organises funeral services, memorial ceremonies, cremation, niche collection, prayer services, and urn placement. Here’s why it earned a spot here:

First, its funeral packages are tailored to the family’s requirements, according to their respective cultural and religious practices. You can be sure that all traditions and customs will be observed.

Aside from its professional roster of funeral directors, Nirvana Memorial Garden employs a team of female embalmers and beauticians, so its services are more than just funeral preparations, per se.

Another thing we love about Nirvana Memorial Garden is that families have the option to pay in monthly installments, with no interest rates. The price is transparent, and there’s a checklist that follows the beginning and completion of the funeral service.

Its columbarium niches are elegant and well-maintained as well, an ideal resting place for your departed loved ones.

Nirvana Memorial Garden provides fully equipped facilities, a beautiful environment, and hassle-free that give peace and comfort to both the departed and their family.

Nirvana Memorial Garden is the award winner for the title of “Largest Bereavement Company in Singapore” by Singapore Books of Record (SBOR) in 2018. Here are some comments from customers:

“Today my mum and I were very grateful to Cat and Alvin for bringing us to view this place. Very peaceful and beautiful. It’s just preparing for the day when we leave the world so our family will not worry about what to do, which I have experienced when my grandma passed away not knowing how or what to do. After talking to Cat we also have a discount though we can buy directly from Nirvana but at a higher pricing, can go on installments too for a period of years at 0 interest.” -Ricky Seah

“After much discussion, I decided to do preplanning for myself and my wife. Found this lady, Shan Shan online. She was very patient and showed us around. We settled for this suite room at a 35% discount. My children like this place too! Its very serene and quiet inside the building.” -Mike Tan

The origins of Ang Brothers Funeral Services can be traced all the way back to the 1950’s, making it one of the most established and reliable funeral companies in Singapore. If what you’re after is a great track record, then we highly recommend checking them out.

Thanks to its years of experience, Ang Brothers is capable of handling every detail of a funeral service, from finding a funeral hall down to making flower arrangements. Hiring them means you will have more time to grieve and process the loss of your loved one.

Ang Brothers handles funeral and post-funeral services for all races and religions, including individuals who chose not to practice a certain religion. Its funeral directors and consultants are well-versed in the traditions and beliefs of different religions and cultures.

For its funeral hearses, Ang Brothers uses the latest models, ensuring a comfortable and excellent send-off. There’s more to it than its topnotch hearses, though.

Another reason it landed a spot here is the flexible payment plans that allow customers to split the costs into months. This is good news for those who can’t shell out thousands of dollars in one payment.

Its flexible payment plans don’t mean higher rates, though. The prices of its funeral packages are still well within the national average.

Pros

  • More than 70 years of experience
  • Flexible payment plans
  • Open to all religions
  • Competitive pricing

Cons

  • Unknown interest rates for the installment plans

Customer Reviews

Here’s what a former customer had to say about their experience with Ang Brothers:

“I first contacted Ang Brothers at 5+am in the morning when we received news of my father-in-law’s passing overseas. As repatriation of remains from overseas during this Covid-19 period is quite tricky, I called a few funeral service providers to get advice on this matter. Casper from Ang Bros was the most clear and steady in his advice, with good subject knowledge and a sureness in his voice even at 5+am in the morning, which is reassuring during such situations. The choice of which funeral service to engage from that point was quite clear. Through the entire process, communication was prompt, clear and easy, with Casper being flexible, helpful and able to cater to all our needs and requests. They were up to date with their setup options being modern and subtly pleasant. Their pricing is also transparent, very reasonable and provides good value. Thanks Ang Brothers and Casper for all the invaluable help and assistance through this difficult situation!” -Pang Wei

From funeral supplies to the actual burial services, Casket Fairprice guarantees to deliver high-quality work that will honor and dignify the deceased. It earned a spot here for three main reasons.

First off, Casket Fairprice caters to every individual regardless of their religious backgrounds, even if the person didn’t adhere to any religion. Its funeral directors know and respect the traditions and customers of Catholics, Christians, Buddhists, and Taoists.

Second, its funeral packages include everything that a grieving family needs, with a starting price that’s well within the average. Who says that you have to drain out your financial resources in order to give a loved one a decent send off?

Lastly, Casket Fairprice is one of the few funeral companies with an installment payment plan, so no need to worry if you can’t shell out thousands of dollars in a single payment.

Aside from organising the funeral, Casket Fairprice can arrange international repatriation and direct cremation as well. We guess it’s to say that it’s a funeral company that has all your funeral and burial needs covered.

We like that everything you need to know about its services is laid out on its website, down to the average price of its funeral packages. If you have concerns that weren’t addressed here, don’t hesitate to visit its website!

Customer Reviews

Casket Fairprice has been praised for its high attention to detail and customer-oriented approach. Take a look at these comments posted online:

“Anyone who encounters such a sad circumstance will feel lost, esp. if it is a first time encounter. Casket Fairprice provided a comprehensive package with real transparent pricing. Everything flows so systematically and taken care of by Casket Fairprice that leaves us more time to settle other stuff. Peggy is very patient and she explained and re-emphasis important points to note to us. Service provided by Casket Fairprice is heartwarming. Thanks to Peggy and her team.” -Meow Leng Chia

“Dealing with a sudden departure of a family member is never easy, especially when the family never had prior experience dealing with such matters. I would like to comment on the good services rendered by Roger from Casket Fairprice who had guided us throughout the bereavement period. Roger attended to us at NTFH and provided an honest and open quotation of the entire funeral. He was accommodating and empathising, which made our experience a very positive one. Most importantly, never a pushy person and given ample time for both my family and me to decide on the various packages he had to offer. He was also always there ready for us, from collection of the body to cremation. I am truly grateful to Roger and his entire team for helping our family go through this period of loss smoothly. God bless you Roger and Team! Highly recommended!” -Chua Anthony

We have a minor problem with Holyland Casket, though: its rates are slightly above average. However, other families tend to look past that given that there are no overtime charges and hidden fees.

Most families have commended Holyland’s hospitality, sincerity, and patience when dealing with guests and relatives of the deceased, so we admire them for that.

If you’re looking for high-quality caskets, then there’s no better option for you than Trinity Caskets. It’s home to some of the finest caskets on the island, but we believe that its funeral services are worth checking out as well.

Trinity Casket may be primarily known as a source of first-rate caskets, but its funeral packages are nothing short of comprehensive. Some of the inclusions are transportation, funeral decorations, flowers, embalming, catering, and of course, a casket.

It’s been around for almost 30 years and has helped more than 12,000 families, which serves as a testament to the quality of its funeral services. It wouldn’t have survived three decades if there’s nothing special about it.

Trinity Casket operates 24 hours a day, even on holidays, making it easier for people to get in touch with them. Its receptionist is always on standby and will walk you through the entire process.

There’s no pressure of moving forward with their services too. You’ll be given advice on how to move forward with the funeral even if you decide not to hire them, but this rarely happens though.

Pros

  • Open on holidays
  • No-obligation consultation
  • High-quality caskets

Customer Reviews

Here are comments posted on its website:

“Hi Angelo, the kindness you extended to us during my aunt’s wake and funeral meant so much. Your professionalism made the planning and execution of the funeral painless and seamless. And you went above and beyond the scope of your duty to have the urn and ashes delivered to her son after his quarantine and for that I will be forever grateful to you” -Evelyn

“Moses was the best help I could ever ask for in a time of urgent need. He was sensitive, punctual, patient, aware, thoughtful and professional. For example, when it was time for the sea burial, our family completely forgot to bring the flowers. Moses, being ever thoughtful, brought along a basket of loose flowers for us to do so. Another example was when he hurriedly prepared umbrellas when it started to rain before the send off. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, Moses. We are blessed to have received your assistance.” -Jason

OPERATING HOURSOpen 24 hours

Founded in 1997, An Lok Funeral Services has grown into one of the most trusted funeral companies in Singapore for its comprehensive and competitively priced funeral packages.

It’s one of few funeral companies on the island that can arrange a Baha’i Faith funeral, which is rarely seen here. Only a few individuals in Singapore practice it, but it’s great that there’s someone out there who can organise a wake that adheres to its customs.

Other religion-based funerals handled by An Lok are Buddhist funeral, Catholic funeral, Christian funeral, Soka funeral, Taoist funeral, and even free thinkers funerals. Its funeral directors will make sure that all rituals and traditions will be observed and respected.

For the location of the wake, it will be held either at a HDB void deck or a multipurpose hall, depending on the availability. Customers may ask for a larger funeral location to accommodate a large volume of visitors.

However, if the family wishes to skip the wake and proceed with the cremation, An Lok Funeral Services can arrange a direct cremation immediately as well.

We also like that An Lok is transparent when it comes to pricing, even if there are more services included in the funeral package than usual. You can expect that the initial quotation will be wildly similar to your final bill.

Pros

  • More than 20 years of experience
  • Transparent pricing
  • Can arrange a Baha’i Faith funeral

Cons

  • Has received complaints about customer service

Customer Reviews

A previous customer named Kendy Loh shared the following comment:

“An Lok Singapore Funeral Services helped my bereaved family to cope with the loss of our loved one whilst ensuring that the wake was well-organised and dignified. In face of our sudden loss and grief, our beloved father still had a beautiful and respectful wake — this is only possible with the help of Alvin. He was transparent and honest with all charges and billables. He advised on what’s practised traditionally and the difference in various rituals. He will always check the objective behind the family for the respective rituals and advise on what is practical and what is not necessary. He offered sincere options and not just whichever that is “best for business”, it goes to show that An Lok practises good business ethics. Because Alvin was so reliable, honest and helpful, we engaged him for all of our beloved father’s buddhist rituals (7th, 49th, 100th and death anniversary). An Lok is an honest and respectable business that prioritises the deceased and the bereaved family. I can not recommend their services enough. They are undoubtedly the best way to bid a loved one goodbye.”

We have yet to encounter another funeral parlour with funeral packages as extensive as the ones offered by Singapore Casket, so it’s no surprise it landed a spot here.

Aside from finding a funeral hall and sourcing funeral decorations, Singapore Casket can take care of the repatriation, embalming, make-up, obituary placement, food catering, and even the cremation of the deceased.

It’s quite rare to work with a funeral company that can handle all these, but there’s still more than Singapore Casket can do. For example, if you have relatives who won’t be able to attend the wake, it can set up an online funeral live streaming for them.

Singapore Casket houses several funeral advisors who will guide the family throughout the course of the wak and provide post-funeral guidance if needed.

The immediate relatives of the deceased even have the option to hold the wake at a larger funeral hole. It’d be no hassle given that it has 13 funeral halls, including landed properties, HDB void decks, and open spaces.

If you’re going to need help before and after the funeral, Singapore Casket won’t go anywhere. It can arrange pre-funeral matters at no extra cost and provide post-funeral services like exhumation and relocation.

Pros

  • Comprehensive funeral packages
  • Reasonably priced services
  • Can be reached 24 hours a day
  • Multiple funeral halls
  • Online funeral live streaming

Cons

  • Has received complaints about hidden fees

Customer Reviews

Take a look at these comments posted on Google Reviews:

“My family held my late grandmother’s wake at Singapore Casket and we were impressed by the service provided. All the staff were polite and knowledgeable, which relieved a good deal of stress for us as we are not very well versed in funeral traditions. My grandmother’s wake was held in the Sapphire Hall which was well appointed and comfortable. Everything went very smoothly, including the sea burial of my grandmother’s ashes which was arranged by Singapore Casket as well.”-M Leong

“One of the most reputable life services in central Singapore, tell them what you need, they will provide the whole package service. Very efficient and helpful. The price can be a bit pricey depending on what you choose but I recommend it if you are a foreigner.”-Sin Hsin

We admit that it’s a regular funeral company, so there’s not much that makes it stand out from others. However, it does have a dedicated team that’s available anytime and is more than happy to accommodate all your concerns.

Singapore Funeral Planner has also been praised for being detail-oriented, which is an important trait in a funeral organiser given that he observes the traditions and customers of a  religious wake.

“Was recommended to engage Harmony Funeral Care. Decided on them due to competitive pricing and good recommendations. They were able to have everything set up within the next day upon contact. I was really impressed with the speed of delivery and services provided. Harmony and her team assisted us throughout the 5 days mourning process up to the cremation. Today was the final day and everything went smoothly. I’m glad that I took up this recommendation. Thank you once again.” -Joven Chan

“I engaged Harmony Funeral Care recently for a Christian wake and Funeral. It was a very pleasant experience. From the onset when Elizabeth came promptly and was able to explain clearly the packages and able to accede to some requests, they were able to comfort without being pushy. Well organised is the word to describe from the brochures which explained clearly the processes involved in the communication. I also like the set up which was clean and neat. On the final night of the wake, there was a briefing for us for the day of the funeral. The day of the funeral was a breeze as well. Thank you Harmony and team.” -Melvin Koh

Jasa Budi Muslim Casket Services isn’t exactly funeral company, but it earned a spot here because it’s been helping not only the Muslim community here in Singapore, but in neighbouring countries as well.

If you have loved ones or friends that need to be repatriated into or out of Singapore, Jasa Budi Muslim Casket Services is the one to call. It’s exported to and collected bodies from Indonesia, India, Vietnam, China, Australia, and even Cairo.

For bodies that don’t need to be repatriated, Jasa Budi provides home/hospital packages that include transportation, cleaning and dressing the body, religious rites, grave maintenance, and drinks for the family.

There’s no other burial-related ompany in Singapore that knows Muslim traditions and rituals better than Jasa Budi, so we highly recommended it to our Muslim brothers and sisters.

With only eight full-time staff, there’s no doubt that Jasa Budi is a small company, but the quality of its services isn’t to be underestimated. It doesn’t outsource its manpower despite its limited staff and equipment.

Pros

  • Knows Muslims traditions
  • Can export and import bodies
  • 24-hour service

Cons

  • Small company, so limited services

If you’re an Indian living in Singapore, you’ve probably heard of Singapore Indian Casket because it’s the leading Hindu funeral service provider on the island – and we’re not surprised that it earned that title.

Singapore Indian Casket team is made up of a small group of local Indians with extensive knowledge of the Hindu culture and funeral rites. If you’re going to let someone arrange your funeral, better leave it to someone who knows your culture by heart, right?

Another thing we like about Singapore Indian Casket is how loaded its funeral packages are. For its basic package, besides the casket and hearse, the flower decoration, bathing of the deceased, 45-seater bus, tables and chairs, and ash collection prayers are included.

You can even add embalming services and cremation to your package for a minimal additional cost. If you want a better casket and larger funeral hall, its funeral directors will take care of that as well.

We want to stress on the fact that Singapore Indian Casket has only been around for less than a decade, but it’s managed to earn the trust of thousands of Indians living in Singapore.

Overall, Singapore Indian Casket serves the ideal option for Indians looking for someone who can arrange the funeral and burial of a loved one. It’s efficient, dependable, and above all, owned by a fellow Indian.

Pros

  • 24-hour embalming doctor
  • Competitively priced packages
  • Friendly and approachable funeral directors
  • Knows everything about Hindu traditions and ritual rites

Cons

  • Can arrange only Hindu funeral

“An extremely professional company led by Mr Kanthan. The entire team gave our grandma a beautiful send off on 19 Oct.

Thank you very much Mr Kanthan, Mr Vinod and the rest of the team.” -PLA

“I would like to thank Mr Kanthan & Mr Vinod(Buddy) for their funeral service of my beloved sister Saratha. They provided excellent service right from the beginning till the very last procedures. Was very clear with the instructions which were given by them and had been very patient in carrying out the process without any complications.

“As its name suggests, Reliant was a strong pillar of support throughout my father’s funeral. Being unfamiliar with Taoist funerals, we depended greatly on this wonderful company to guide us. On top of knowing exactly what they were doing and being efficient, they were also honest, trustworthy and sensitive in their interactions with us. Everything was handled beautifully, from the prayers to the collection of the ashes. Everyone was professional, friendly and easy to communicate with. It was also helpful that the team could speak English, Mandarin and Hokkien. Words can’t sufficiently describe how grateful I am to Xiu Li and her team. I would strongly recommend this company if you’re in the unfortunate position of having to plan a funeral for a loved one as I am certain that you will be in good hands.” -Szu

Funeral Solutions stands as the perfect choice for many Singaporeans seeking ordinary Buddhist and Taoist funeral services, nothing fancy and extravagant. It’s a budget-friendly option too, so going over the budget is highly unlikely.

One thing we noticed about Funeral Solutions is that it strictly follows a fairly traditional process of arranging those services. For instance, your assigned funeral director will start by asking questions about the wishes of the deceased and your preferences.

After that, an explanation on each practice and package will be given. It even helps families distinguish the differences between the Buddhist and Taoist practices.

In line with that, there’s a guarantee that all practices and beliefs of the deceased’s religion will be strictly followed if you choose to hire Funeral Solutions. That’s what we love most about it – the assurance.

If the presented funeral package doesn’t work for you, Funeral Solutions allows family members to customise it according to their preferences and budget.

Lastly, keep in mind that Funeral Solutions can only arrange Taoist and Buddhist funerals and post-funeral services.

Pros

  • Budget-friendly option
  • Traditional funeral service, nothing fancy
  • Customised funeral packages

Cons

  • For Buddhists and Taoists only

Nituo Funeral Services is one of the youngest undertakers on this list, but their quality of services show years longer than they have been open. This is because the put great care into every service they work on, never failing to keep in mind the business’ values, which are sincerity, honest, and prudency.

Now, one may ask, how do these values come into play if I choose Nituo Funeral Services? Well, for one, Nituo serves each client, regardless of race and religion, with utmost care and sincerity. 

They’re aware that most of the people they encounter in the field aren’t in the best state of mind, which is why they go the extra mile to ensure clients  a meaningful and positive experience over the course of Nituo’s processions. 

Another thing worth noting is that Nituo Funeral Services is very transparent in the costs of their services. There are no hidden fees, a proper breakdown is provided, and the Nituo team will try to address all concerns in a timely manner.

Lastly, Nituo strongly believes that fair prices are a must in the funeral business. Costs should not be driven up simply because one client is part of a different income bracket.

So, you can expect that most of their offerings have fixed prices — prices that cover everything in the package with not a single cent wasted.

If you’re looking for a customised funeral service in Singapore, we recommend taking a look at The Life Celebrant. It may be a small funeral company, but it’s capable of celebrating the life of a friend or loved one through a dignified funeral.

“A week ago, we entrusted TLC to conduct the funeral for our mother. From the first call, I was put at ease by Mr Denis Wee who assured me with his caring tone that everything will be well taken care of. What followed ran like clockwork. Who to do what at when went smoothly without hiccups. This was not my first encounter with TLC. It was the third time. I chose TLC again this time because of their reliability , care and professionalism. The staff members dressed elegantly. Wong KT is always smiling even though she was so busy. The wake area was set up elegantly with modern appearance  without losing the traditional flavour of a Taoist ritual. All this came with reasonable cost. The charges are transparent. There was no hidden cost. I paid what I chose. We thanks TLC for making our experience less painful.” -Chua Poh Keyong

Another full-service funeral company worth checking out is Serenity Casket. We’ll be the first to admit that it doesn’t have the most budget-friendly funeral services, but with how inclusive its funeral packages are, you won’t have to move a muscle yourself.

Serenity Caskets has only been around since 2009, notably younger than most of the funeral companies featured here. What we’re sure of is this: the quality of its funeral services doesn’t disappoint.

Its funeral hearse alone screams of elegance. If other funeral companies typically use ordinary sedans, Serenity Caskets takes it up a notch with a Mercedes-Benz Limo.

It’s busy almost every day of the week, but no worries because it has a huge team made up of funeral directors, coordinators, logistics officers, and embalmers. All families will be assisted right away, even during midnight.

Serenity Caskets focuses on providing personalised funeral services, so whether you want to hold the wake at a church, HDB void deck, or your own home, its funeral coordinators will take care of the logistics.

It doesn’t hesitate to go the extra mile to make the entire funeral convenient for the family of the deceased. If other relatives won’t be able to attend, Serenity Caskets will set up an online livestream that can be viewed anywhere in the world.

Finally, if you want to keep the urn in a columbarium or scatter it into the ocean, Serenity Caskets will make the necessary arrangements to make your decision possible.

Pros

Serenity Casket has an average rating of 4.9 out of 5 on Google Reviews, making it one of the top-rated funeral service providers in Singapore. Here are some comments:

“Serenity provided top notch services and products that are above the market norm during the recent demise of our father.  Elson and team are fantastic people to work with. Elson is super responsive, responsible, and understanding. He and his team worked tirelessly to ensure that every detail of the wake and funeral are taken care of so that we have time to grieve.  The embalming is also professionally done and many of our relatives and friends commented that our dad looked so natural.  The wake setup is beautiful and elegant. You can almost feel that they are in this business not just for the money but they really have a heart to serve others.   They are also very transparent with their pricing which is very competitive. No hidden cost and they are upfront with what’s included and what’s not.  Overall, it was a smooth and seamless process. I am so glad that we engaged Serenity to provide a dignified send off for our dad.”-K Cheong

“Appreciated and thanks to Jacky and his team. Everything went smoothly from hospital to wake. All details were well taken care of by his team. Our dad’s wake was beautifully set up and it is peaceful, soothing and comforting to all of us. Toilet was clean and spacious too. We were surprisingly pleased with the funeral hearse provided. During memorial service, staff was assigned to help up with seating arrangements and refreshments. Their service had really exceeded our expectations. Jacky and his team are really supportive, professional and awesome.” -Apple Kow
