What is Direct Funeral Service?
A Direct Funeral is the uncomplicated and the most economic funeral option. The term direct funeral generally used to refer to both direct burial and direct cremation. However, in Singapore Direct Funeral Service will refer only to Direct Cremation Service. The reason is simple, due to the scarcity of burial spaces burial is very costly here. Thus, Direct Burial Service is not preferred by the people of Singapore.
Direct burial or cremation generally takes place without a funeral wake service beforehand, and usually without any mourners present. These types of funerals include only the essential materials of a cremation or burial enabling the funeral director to keep costs to a minimum.
Direct Funeral Services is an increasingly popular alternative to a traditional funeral. Because they are ideal for those looking for a low-cost funeral option or those that do not want a mess after the death of their loved ones. Hence, Direct Funeral Services saves both time and money.

Direct Burial Service
A Direct Burial Service is a burial without a funeral wake or ceremony. The Direct burial is the least preferable option of the two direct funeral options and it not readily available in Singapore. Unlike a direct cremation which can often be provided for a predetermined price, the cost of a direct burial can be influenced by several factors, such as location, material of the tombstone, labour cost for grave digging. The cost of the burial location is very high in Singapore due to the scarcity of the same.
In many Countries, committal will often take place at a burial ground. Hence, the authority chooses the resting place which will not always be local. Therefore, it means direct burial may not be a suitable choice for those families that want to visit their loved one’s grave. If this is the case, a direct cremation may suit your needs better, as you can request the ashes are returned to you. You could then choose to bury or inter your loved one’s ashes if you would like your loved one to have a final resting place that you are able to visit.
