The 5 Best Sea Burial Services in Singapore

The 5 Best Sea Burial Services in Singapore

How we picked

Key Services

To save you cash, we recommend getting sea burial services along with a funeral service package, so we rounded up highly commended funeral services that package funeral and burial rites together.


Funeral-rated expenses are a financial investment, and there are funeral homes that are willing to put their clients’ financial ability as a priority. We gathered them here in this list.

Scope of Religions

Singapore’s diverse population also means there are various religions among citizens. We chose funeral homes that cater to most of them, or at least have expert grasp on religions practised among many.


Funerals and burials are a matter of grief. We selected funeral homes that take a patient and exceptional approach in handling their clients’ grieving stage.

Client Feedback

As funerals are a personal affair, we asked clients to name the funeral homes that not only gave them ample time to find their footing, but guided them through their heartbreak as well.

  • All-inclusive funeral/burial packages
  • Affordable and transparent rates
  • Flexible payment options with instalment plan
  • Can cater to various religions


  • Heavy traffic-prone office area

With sea burial rising in demand over the years as a cost-effective alternative to housing ashes in a columbarium, it’s understandable to be intrigued with the concept.

And who better to approach your questions than Singapore’s very own seasoned deathcare specialists: Ang Brothers Funeral Services.

With over 50 years of experience in arranging wake ceremonies for thousands of families across the island, you can trust Ang Brothers Funeral Services to understand what you need even with just a few words.

And that goes for all its clients, irrespective of their religious practice. Which is why we find Ang Brothers Funeral Services second to none in terms of religious inclusivity.

It caters to Christians and Catholics, Buddhists, Taoists, Sokas, and Freethinkers alike, and gives equal post-funeral options to all of them, including sea burial ceremonies.

If you’re good and done with the funeral ceremonies — or you’ve opted to skip them — and are only looking to conduct post-death rites, Ang Brothers Funeral Services can still accommodate you with its rites-exclusive service.

Its sea burial service already includes boat rental fees and flower arrangements. Personally, we think this goes perfectly with its Direct Funeral Package.

Meanwhile, if you need a 3-day (or longer) funeral package included, we’ve got some good news about Ang Brothers Funeral Services: it offers a flexible payment method with an instalment plan!

And that’s on top of its package rates being one of the most affordable rates you can find in Singapore. When it comes to affordability but high quality funeral services, Ang Brothers Funeral Services is our top pick.

If you have further inquiries about its packages, its 24-hour hotline can attend to you any time. 

We also recommend booking an appointment via its website as a WhatsApp message might get lost among several other demands for its service.

You can also drive down to its office at Serangoon, although the route is prone to congested traffic during rush hours and especially during festivals.

  • Caters to various religions
  • Customisable packages
  • Eco-friendly alternatives for rites and wake ceremonies


  • No fixed rates for packages

Ang Chin Moh Funeral Directors prides itself on its century-long existence in the deathcare industry, but that’s not the only thing that impressed us about it.

Over the years of its business, Ang Chin Moh Funeral Directors has learnt to adapt an eco-friendly alternative to regular funeral ceremonies. 

Usually, your only green option is to have an environmental post-funeral service.

But Ang Chin Moh Funeral Directors makes it possible to put in order a wake ceremony that uses biodegradable materials — from altar set-up to casket and urn selection.

Of course if you’re opting for a green funeral, it’s best to observe the practice to the end. As such, Ang Chin Moh extends its service to sea burials, in-land ash scattering, and even keepsake jewellery.

During its sea burial rites, it still offers eco-friendly alternatives such as biodegradable urns. We believe this is best for people who want their sea burial ceremonies to be done overseas as well.

This alternative is also applicable to all religious sectors it caters to, which in itself is extensive as well and emphasises on dialectal differences in culture. 

We take this as an indicator of Ang Chin Moh Funeral Directors’ attention to details.

Originally established to cater to the Hokkien community, Ang Chin Moh Funeral Directors understands the nuances in regional practices and how practices and ceremonial items can be distinct within certain groups.

That’s why it lets clients personalise their own bundle of its services based on what they need. 

The downside to this is that its packages don’t come at a fixed rate, but then again, you can maximise or minimise its services based on your budget and resources.

Nonetheless, it still gives a transparent quotation of your expenses, as well as a free consultation to its clients, especially if you’re looking to customise an exclusive, pre-paid funeral plan via its FuneralSure services.

Ang Chin Moh Funeral Directors is ready to accommodate clients 24/7. 

It has contact forms on its official websites, as well as an office down at Geylang Bahru that’s accessible via MRT, but your best option would be to call its hotline.

  • Caters to various religions
  • Locally and globally associated with other funeral homes
  • Customisable packages
  • Offers grief counselling


  • No clear or fixed rates
  • May involve additional charges

It’s easy to forget sometimes that, while taboo, funeral services are still very much a profession. But that’s exactly what Singapore Funeral Services is about.

When it comes to evidencing that the role of an undertaker is no different from any other undertaking, we look to Singapore Funeral Services as a reference.

It’s a member of both local and global associations that provide assistance to fellow funeral directors. 

So you can consider Singapore Funeral Services a senior in the industry both in history as well as standard and resources.

Availing its services means you’re guaranteed to receive top notch support. 

In fact, when it comes to repatriation of remains, we believe Singapore Funeral Services’ global connections can offer the most hassle-free process.

Its packages are inclusive of all the essentials you may need based on your religious practice — from wake to post-funeral rites — while anything else you may want to add can be customisable. 

It even gives an option of a Mercedes-Benz hearse!

Its post-funeral services are pretty much as inclusive as its regular funeral packages. It also gives you plenty of options from regular burials to cremation and in-land scattering of ashes or sea burial.

Overall, however, its customisable options mean extra charges for you rather than starting with a fixed rate. This also means that its rates are estimated only upon consultation.

Although, we still have to give it bonus points for its extra grief counselling services. It has its own counsellors on board to aid bereaved families in processing their heartaches in a healthy way.

If you want to reach its office, it’s best to do it via its 24-hour hotline. 

You can also try booking an appointment thru its website, although it doesn’t have an exhaustive contact form unlike others on our list, so your request might get lost among career inquiries.

  • Unique and all-inclusive packages
  • Caters to various religions
  • Uses biodegradable urns for sea burial
  • Transparent pricing


  • Rates on the pricier side

Like with most leading funeral services in Singapore, The Life Celebrant is born of a lineage of death care experts.

Ancestral expertise and global education combined to equip founder and funeral director Angjolie Mei with the know-hows of funeral culture. 

This stands out to us as a sincere effort to bridge Singapore’s traditional funeral rites with that of the rest of the world.

You can say that, of all the funeral homes in Singapore, we view The Life Celebrant as the most lenient and forward-thinking.

As a matter of fact, it views funerals as an avenue for celebration, with the philosophy that the departed should be celebrated for having lived.

Nonetheless, its funeral packages are as exhaustive as traditional funeral homes, already inclusive of catering and media services. 

This is opposed to other funeral services that offer and charge for those as add-ons to pre-existing packages.

It also takes care of the tiny details that make each funeral unique despite the similarities in religious practices. 

Hence, it makes room for a little customisation, but otherwise, its packages leave nothing else to be desired.

The same can be said for its post-funeral services. It even goes the extra mile to provide biodegradable urns should you opt for a sea burial service.

It also allows you to choose between two piers — Marina South Pier or Changi Pier — from which to perform the rites.

With all of that said, while The Life Celebrant is unique among its peers, it’s also one of the priciest in the industry. 

If it’s any consolation, however, we’ve gathered from clients that what you consult is what you get.

When it gives you a quotation, it doesn’t surprise you with hidden charges later on.

Overall, The Life Celebrant is the perfect choice for anyone who’s looking for a less gloomy rite of passage for their loved ones.

If you want more elaboration regarding its services, you may dial its staff via 24-hour hotline or drive down to its office at Geylang Bahru. It’s fairly easy to commute to, with an MRT station nearby.

  • Customisable but affordable packages
  • Live streaming services for funeral wakes


  • No fixed rates
  • Caters to Christians and Catholics only

Passion Bereavement Care is admittedly our youngest entry history-wise, but despite its young business age, we find its services as competitive as its older peers.

Its packages are also customisable, which means like the others before it, it doesn’t offer a fixed starting rate. 

But overall, these packages are packed so that it doesn’t only take care of the bereaved families but of the guests as well. 

Among its distinct services is a live streaming of the funeral wake for relatives who can’t fly home for the ceremony.

That said, all other elements of its packages are pretty standard and cover most everything you need. That is, if you’re preparing for a Christian or Catholic funeral.

Passion Bereavement Care’s largest limitation is that it only caters to Christians and Catholics. 

However, we’d like to utilise this weakness and look on the brighter side: this narrows down options for our Christian and Catholic citizens.

Specialising in certain fields, especially one with obvious similarities, also makes it easier for the service providers to focus on smaller details of the rites. 

To us, this also means that you can count its service as communal sympathy.

In fact, Passion Bereavement Care lives up to its name of offering bereavement care to its clients. It makes sure to be with the bereaved families, every step of the way, always offering options for them.

Down to its post-funeral services, Passion Bereavement Care makes sure you as its client are not limited by anything else, may it be your own grief or budget. 

It even extends its live streaming services to sea burials or inland scattering of ashes.

For an affordable and flexible pricing, it patiently arranges a funeral rite that suits your financial abilities.

If you’re a Christian or Catholic looking for a funeral and burial service you can trust, we give you this as a sign to call Passion Bereavement Care. Its hotline is open 24/7 for consultation.
