Chinese Funerals Traditional Or Contemporary
We cater for all Chinese Religious beliefs such as Buddhist, Christian, Taoist, and Christian.
We are also adept at arranging non-denominational Chinese funeral services.
Our experienced staff are here to assist you every step of the way, no matter what style of funeral service you wish to arrange. We have a native Chinese who can be involved in your funeral arrangements.
Our Director has over 23 years funeral experience, and has been known for his warm, professional and understanding approach since 1996. Our Chinese funerals manager, Kelly Yang (Yang KeMei), speaks and writes fluent Mandarin. This can be an added comfort, especially to the older generation who may prefer to speak in Mandarin.
We Come To You
We come to you in the comfort of your own home to make all arrangements for the funeral. And we commit fully to ensure your family’s specific customs and wishes are followed in a professional manner, adhering to your traditions and requests.
Ceremonies are normally conducted by a Monk. This depends on the wishes of the family.
We can provide multilingual services, effectively bridging language barriers. This can allow extended family and friends to be closer during this time of mourning. Our experience and knowledge help you create a funeral that respects the deceased and allows your family to mourn in a meaningful way.
We Work With You
Chinese funeral rites often follow a complex system of status. In part, older people may not show respect to a younger deceased counterpart. The older people may not even take part in arranging the younger person’s funeral.
The body is carefully washed and prepared once an auspicious day is chosen for the Ceremony. The deceased is normally never dressed in red, as this colour may cause their spirit to become a ghost. Joss paper (prayer money) is often burned, to enable the deceased to have money for use in the afterlife.
Scriptures may be chanted over the casket, and music may be used to help scare away bad spirits on the journey to the graveside. Family members will burn joss sticks and offer prayers for the dead at an altar at home. At least once a year they visit the gravesite for the traditional Tomb Sweeping Ceremony.
After you engage us, you will see our personal service and special touches are sure to make your loved one’s funeral service the best it can be.
