Dear brothers & sisters in Christ,
Supporting families during their time of bereavement is our duty and focus.
In light of the recent government measures and the home-going of the first two COVID-19 patients in Singapore, we would like to share the options for bereaved families to conduct funerals during this season.
Question 1: Can a wake/vigil still be held for a non-COVID-19 loved one during this period?
Yes, a wake/vigil can still be held as usual.
Question 2: Can a wake/vigil still be held for a COVID-19 loved one during this period?
Yes, a wake/vigil can be held up to a maximum of 3 days. The cremation or burial has to be conducted within these 3 days.
Question 3: How can a funeral wake/vigil be conducted with the new measures?
All Saints Funerals has prepared these few measures to allow families to have a meaningful and dignified farewell for their loved ones.
A. Online Ticketing
Visitors who would like to visit the wake will need to register for a free ticket based on preferred visiting time slots. This will help facilitate the planning of visitations to pay respects while not exceeding the stipulated 10-persons limit at any point in time.
B. Online Memorial
Messages of condolences can be written on the online memorials by friends to offer their sympathies to the bereaved families.
C. Live Streaming
The option of live streaming is available to enable family and friends to participate in the wake/vigil and funeral-day proceedings online.
D. Video Recording
The option of recording funeral-day proceedings for sharing with family and friends on the online memorials is also available.
Families may appoint a PayNow account of any family member to receive donations. Details of such arrangements will be posted on the online memorials for dissemination purposes.
Please feel free to get in touch with us if you would like to find out more or to clarify any point.
Paul & Daniel
