Funeral Preparation Checklist

Death has a habit of striking unexpectedly. And when it happens, the bereaved are often left ill-prepared for funeral related matters. And that’s where we can help, by taking care of every aspect of the funeral planning and arrangements so that you can concentrate on giving your loved one a memorable send-off.

And to help us help you better, here are a checklist we have prepared for you to go through (which includes decisions you must make), so that we can understand your needs and better assist you.

Our Simple Funeral Arrangement Checklist


While we can provide clothing at additional cost, it’s more meaningful if your loved one can be send-off wearing something he/ she loves. Is there any clothes he or she is particularly fond of?

Funeral Photograph

Does your loved one have any favourite photograph? We will need you to get that ready so that we can arrange for it to be enlarge for use at the funeral.


Does anyone in the family have your loved one’s NRIC. You will need to have this ready as it is required for registering the death and obtaining the death certificate.

Location of wake

Where would you like the wake to be held? At your home, the HDB void deck or a funeral parlour? Whatever your decision is, we will assist with the arrangement.

Your Loved One’s Religion

To a large extend, your loved one’s religion will determine the type of funeral we arrange.

Dialect Group

Other than religion, we will also take into consideration your loved one’s dialect group when arranging the funeral as different dialect groups in Singapore tend to have different practices when it comes to funeral arrangements.

Burial or Cremation

We will need to know this to help make the necessary arrangements. Do note that for burials, Singapore laws currently limits the burial period to a maximum of 15 years.

Final Resting Place for Ashes (For Cremation Cases)

The following are the options you will have. Let us know your preference:

  • Government Columbaria
  • Private Columbaria (which one? Or do you want us to suggest?)
  • Sea Burial

Any Special Request/ Arrangements Needed?

Are there any special request you have or information we should know that can help us make the funeral more meaningful and special?

Important Note

Do take sometime to go through this checklist and let us have your decisions and preferences. It’s important and can help us make the right preparations and arrangements for the wake and funeral.
