Funeral Services

Pre-funeral services include grooming and dressing, embalming, floral arrangements, photo enlargement and framing, and the setting up of an air-conditioned wake at Nirvana’s Columbarium. Post-funeral services provide peace of mind to bereaved families, with Nirvana handling the collection of the death certificate and relevant documents, transportation of the deceased, and assistance with the arrangement of cremation or burial.

Nirvana Memorial Hall offers a variety of funeral services, including a 24-hour bereavement care team. Operating in Singapore since 1999, Nirvana has developed considerable experience in managing bereaved families from all walks of life.

Cremation Services

Nirvana offers a professional cremation service that is personal, dignified, and tailored to the needs of the deceased’s family and loved ones. This service is carried out at our very own state-of-the-art crematorium located at Mandai. With a checkered history and a past of around 100 years old, this historical modern facility is located on a hilltop where a panoramic view of the surrounding greens can be viewed. The facility provides an ambiance and setting to help you pause, reflect, and commit your loved ones in a final farewell. The body is attended to with the highest level of care and dignity. All identification checks and forms are verified on multiple occasions. We understand the grief and anxiety that families might face during the period of forms verification and the time required before the cremation procedure. Thus, we allow families to spend their last moments with the deceased in their respective religion funeral parlors until the day of the cremation. This also allows them time for a proper closure. The cremation will usually take between 1-2 hours. After which, the ashes are then carefully and properly handled before returning them to the family. A date and time will also be provided should the family wish to witness the procedure of placing the casket into the furnace, although it may be met with great sadness and painful emotions.

Burial Services

Embalming, dressing, and make-up will come next to ensure that the deceased looks his/her best. A simple or elaborate funeral service will give family and friends an opportunity to say goodbye. Transportation back to the funeral parlour or a place of worship for the service is available. Generally, the body will then be transported to the place of burial where our staff will assist in carrying the coffin to the gravesite. At Nirvana Memorial Garden, burial plots are available. There is a choice of Chinese or Muslim sections. Funeral and burial plans are available to make ease of the current burden of decisions when a loved one passes away. After the service, family and friends can adjourn to our air-conditioned mourning hall to view the documentation of that day’s event and rest while having light refreshments. At Nirvana, peace of mind is affordable.

Repatriation Services

Nirvana Memorial Centre Singapore not only facilitates our local bereaved families with bereavement care but also offers various extended services to our Hindu community globally. We are committed to improving and innovating our Hindu funeral and spiritual needs. One of the key services is to provide repatriation services. Globalization and internationalization have led many family members and relatives to relocate themselves to various countries in search of better prospects and life. When an unfortunate mishap happens to the Hindu community of having a loved one pass away, and if they are away from homeland, they will wish to have a Hindu funeral for the deceased in Singapore and send them back to their homeland for final cremation or burial. Nirvana’s repatriation services offer global transportation (from Singapore to anywhere in the world) of deceased remains to the family members’ homeland for final rites. This service includes detailed customs clearance, airport cargo handling, and coordinating with our global partners to provide an efficient and seamless transportation of the deceased remains. With a dedicated team to ensure the utmost care and comfort for the family members, Nirvana will assist in making the necessary flight arrangements for those family members who are required to escort the deceased remains to the homeland.

Pre-Planning Services

The Nirvana Pre-Planning Services were created to assist families to avoid the situation where they may have made an uninformed decision on Funeral Services without taking into consideration what the deceased has really wanted. This is especially important for family members that are non-Singaporean, for making a decision to repatriate the deceased to their country of origin can be quite costly. Our staff have encountered families that are still paying off bank loans for repatriation costs for loved ones who have passed away several years ago. With a Repatriation Pre-Planning package, we can provide advice on the best possible way to transport the deceased at a reasonable cost. This may even involve making peace with the fact that it may be more cost effective to arrange for a funeral service in Singapore, rather than repatriation.

The caring staff at Nirvana Singapore knows that the death of a beloved family member can be overwhelming. From dealing with bereavement to ensuring that your loved one receives the best possible care, the details can be daunting. It is sometimes best to relieve some of the burden by pre-planning the funeral services. Primarily, pre-planning allows you to ensure that your life tribute and other wishes are carried out exactly as you would like them and it can prevent overspending. For example, pre-planning allows you to fix the cost of the services at today’s Singapore Nirvana¬†price. At Nirvana Singapore, we have several pre-planning packages that can cater to your needs. From a basic pre-death plan, to a plan that includes preparation of necessary documents and permits, transportation of the deceased, and selection of funeral merchandise and services.
