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. Actually, Direct Burial Service is not readily available in Singapore. As a result, Direct burial is not provided in Direct Funeral Services 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 a number of factors, such as location. The cost of the burial location is very high in Singapore due to the scarcity of the same. The ‘Choa Chu Kang’ is the only available cemetery in Singapore. The cost of a tombstone would not be included as part of a Direct Burial Package. There may also be additional costs such as grave digging which might not be incurred with a direct cremation.
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.
The nature of a Direct Funeral Service means there is no option to view the deceased. Therefore, embalming is not required.
