Singapore Funeral Urns
The vase that is used to contain the cremated ashes is called an Urn. Urns come in different materials, colors, shapes and sizes. Urns can be made up of marble, ceramic, crystal, glass and even metal. In Singapore, urns can be placed in governmental columbaria, private columbaria or even at home.
There are 3 governmental columnbaria in Singapore namely:
- Mandai Columbarium
- Choa Chu Kang Columbarium and
- Yishun Columbarium
All 3 operates from 8AM to 5.30PM daily. A single niche space costs S$500 while a family niche space costs S$900. Niche spaces are allocated randomly. S$250 must be added to have the option to choose the niche space location.
Most private columbaria are found in religious organisations in Singapore. They are often pricier but the higher price is justified by a more convenient location and sometimes better facilities (air-conditioned, meals provision,etc)
Some people also prefer to use an urn for sea burial. For those placing the urn in a niche, remember to consider the size of the niche to decide on the urn size. The type of urn you choose ultimately really depends on individuals’ preferences. As most urns are passed down from through the generations, it might be prudent to opt for cremation urn that is of premium quality. In modern days, bio-degradable urns are also offered in a bid to cater to those who are more environmentally conscious.
To cater to the different preferences of families, we also offer premium urns that are protected with GlassCoat - a thick layer of transparent PU-based lacquer and electroplating process which protects the urns and preserve their beauty and brilliance. In fact, most of these premium urns actually come with Swarosvski elements to give them a contemporary finish.
