Eugene, the boss of Entrust is such a compassionate soul. Although he is only 23 years old, he is a dynamic, no nonsense, hands-on reliable young man.

Eugene does what he says, answer your calls and messages promptly while always remaining really composed. Visibly humble and very down to earth and very capable too.

Rest assured your loved one will be in good hands from the start to the end. This young man sets every soul free be it big or small.

Thank you Eugene and I give a thumbs up to Entrust Funeral Service.

Sea burial ceremony

Sea burials following cremation have become more common in Singapore, particularly if the deceased had a special connection with the sea.

Anyone can be buried at sea, and no permit is needed. There are no particular rules for the ceremony, which is simply carried out according to the wishes of the deceased and family.

A sea burial can be non-religious or based on religious beliefs. For instance, a Buddhist sea burial may include chanting and prayers by monks, while a Christian ceremony could include a minister to read a scripture or eulogy.

In a traditional sea burial, the ashes of the deceased are scattered into the sea, although biodegradable urns are now available.

An official site for sea burial ceremonies has been designated near Pulau Semakau by the Maritime Port Authority (MPA).

If you’re planning a Catholic funeral service, it’s worth noting that the Roman Catholic Church forbids the scattering of ashes at sea – or anywhere else – although it permits cremated remains to be committed to the sea in an urn.

Entrust Funeral Service provides comprehensive post-cremation sea burial services, including:

  • Collection of ashes and arranging transport to the seashore.
  • Chartering a boat and coordinating memorial/prayer services.
  • Conducting the sea burial ceremony.

49-day post-funeral services

Buddhist funeral services and Taoist funeral services typically continue for 49 days as family members pray and do charitable deeds to earn merits for the guidance of the deceased’s soul along the path to a new rebirth. It’s believed it takes 49 days for the consciousness to migrate from this life to the next.

Entrust provides all the services necessary to allow your family to help the deceased’s transition throughout the 49 days, including:

  • Custody service for the ancestral tablet, including offering two meals a day to the deceased. Usually, the family has to search for a temple to provide the ancestral tablet service. Entrust saves you this hassle – we partner an appropriate place of worship so that the 49-day ritual will be carried out reliably.
  • Coordinating optional prayer services on every seventh day, including engaging a monk or priest.

On the 49th day, Entrust Funeral Service will:

  • Organise the Ancestral Tablet Moving Ceremony to relocate the tablet from our premises to a temple or the home of the family.
  • Engage a monk or priest for the ceremony.
  • Provide food offering services and organise joss paper offerings.

Entrust Funeral Service packages are underpinned by our core values of respect, sincerity, integrity, compassion, and reliability. We aim to make you feel that we’re holding your hand before, during, and after the entire funeral process.

100th-day funeral ceremony

After the 49-day period of funeral rites, mourning may continue for the family for 100 days – until the final departure of the deceased’s soul from this world.

100th-day services provided by Entrust include:

  • Organising prayers at the columbarium where the ashes are held or at the cemetery burial site.
  • Engaging the monk or priest.
  • Providing joss paper and food offerings.

Gong Teck (功德) ceremony

Gong Teck (功德 or Kong Teck) refers to the Buddhist or Taoist ceremony to facilitate the peaceful passing of the deceased onto the next phase of life. It generally takes place 3 years after death.

Gong Teck includes chanting of mantras by priests or monks and typically focuses on burnt offerings – symbolic paper replicas of items such as:

  • An elaborate home or palace
  • A stylish car
  • Gold or silver mountains
  • Clothes

Hell money is also often burned so the deceased has currency in the afterlife to distract evil spirits.

Entrust Funeral Service can meet all your needs for a Gong Teck ceremony, including services such as:

  • Preplanning of the ritual, taking into account your budget, religion and dialect group, family size, and appropriate dates.
  • Acquire a suitable space large enough to accommodate the Grand Prayer Altar and ceremonial items for prayers, extra-large paper houses, gold and silver mountains, other paper replicas, and attendees.
  • Engaging monks or priests.
  • Food offering services and joss paper offerings.
  • Coordination of moving the paper house to the burning site, and transport of family to the burning location.
  • Taking the ancestral tablet back to its original site.

Gong Teck can also be performed in open fields with marquees.

Entrust Funeral Service will treat your loved one with utmost respect. We'll ensure the experience you and your family have with us is truly pleasant.

Ancestral tablet prayers

Chinese Buddhists and Taoists accord special reverence to family ancestors, grounded in the belief that the spirits of those who have died continue to influence the world of the living.

A sacred ancestral tablet is an important symbol that allows ongoing respect to be paid to the deceased in the form of prayers for their soul.

Ancestral tablet prayers are performed on ritual occasions such as:

  • Ancestral tablet moving.
  • Ancestral tablet installation.
  • Anniversaries of the death.
  • Traditional Chinese festivals.
  • Every seventh day after death up to the seventh-seventh day (49 days).

Services provided by Entrust to facilitate ancestral tablet prayers include:

  • Engaging the monk or priest.
  • Providing food offering services and joss paper offerings.

Prayers at columbarium

A columbarium is a special place in Buddhist and Taoist religions designed to display cremation urns as a celebration of the life of the deceased and provide a focal point for ancestral worship and filial piety.

Prayers at a columbarium are usually performed on the 100th day after death or during the annual Ching Ming Festival (Qingming Festival or Tomb-sweeping Day).

Services provided by Entrust in connection with columbarium prayers include:

  • Provision of urns.
  • Marble plaque carving and gravestone manufacture.
  • Organising prayer ceremonies.
  • Engaging the monk or priest.
  • Food offering services and joss paper offerings.

Memorial services

Entrust can also provide support resources for memorial services following a Christian funeral service.

These occasions typically take place weeks after the funeral. They’re far more relaxed than the funeral service, with greater participation from attendees and more focus on celebrating the life of the departed.

We also offer support services for remembrance observances after non-religious funerals.

Advantages of Entrust’s post-funeral services

Entrust Funeral Service offers reliable, affordable post-funeral services that allow your family to honour their loved one in a dignified manner without having to worry about the practicalities of the numerous arrangements that need to be made.

Entrust has established a strong reputation across all areas of funeral services, including post-funeral rituals, based on our core values of:

  • Professionalism
  • Compassion
