Direct Cremation Funeral Packages
Direct cremation or direct burial is a basic funeral option without a wake. From the passing of your loved one to the dressing process, and finally sending your beloved for cremation or burial, everything will take place in a single day.
This simple, fuss-free service is suitable for small families who do not wish to hold a wake, or when family members and friends are unable to gather in time for a wake. Budget constraint is also one of the top reasons for choosing direct cremation or direct burial.
Even though a wake is not conducted, we are here to help if you wish to spend some quiet moments with your loved one or have a short prayer performed at the cremation or burial hall.
Precious Angel Funeral Packages
The passing of a child is the hardest heartbreak any parent can endure, and we want to be there for you. Our Precious Angel funeral packages are specially tailored for these age groups:
- Newborn: 0 – 2 months
- Infant: 2 months – 1 year old
- Toddler: 1 – 4 years old
With much love, we have curated a set of items, including a romper, books, booties, a plush toy, and a blanket for your little angel. These lovely items will bring comfort to your baby and accompany them on their journey.

Memorial Service Packages
Unlike a traditional wake or funeral where the body and casket of the departed are present, a memorial service takes place after the remains have been cared for. If your loved one is cremated, the memorial service will feature the urn containing their ashes. And if ground burial is chosen, a memorial service can still be held with your loved one’s portrait. Memorial services serve the same purpose as other forms of funeral ceremonies, and that is to honour a person who is no longer around.
Families go with a memorial service for various reasons. One of the main reasons is when their loved one has passed away due to an unnatural cause, which makes the body unsuitable for a wake. Others opt for a memorial service when a loved one has passed away overseas. It’s also not uncommon for organisations to conduct memorial services for a departed founder or key business leader.
A memorial service can be held anywhere as long as it’s allowed, such as funeral parlours, void decks, offices, residences, and even hotels. From the floral arrangements to the eulogies, our team at Direct will do our best to meet your requirements.
We want to help you share the life of your loved one because everyone has a story to tell. Photo collages projected on television, wishing trees with condolence messages, and personal excerpts showcased for guests to read, are all services exclusive to our clients throughout the wake.
Tales of bravery, laughter, and love—let the legacy of your loved one live on through stories.

At Direct, we are committed to serving not just your immediate funeral needs, but your heart needs as well. Led by psychotherapist Darren Cheng who’s also Direct’s CEO, our team of counsellors are with you every step of the way as you cope with the departure of a dear one.
Our Lead Counsellor
Darren holds a master’s in counselling and a bachelor’s in psychology, as well as a master trainer level certification in hypnotherapy. Before joining Direct, he ran a successful practice at the renowned Camden Medical Centre.
Darren is passionate about raising awareness on mental health care and has conducted talks for organisations including the Singapore Police Force, Institute of Mental Health, DBS Bank, United Overseas Bank, and many more. He also travels the island to give talks on the practical aspects of dealing with death. This series of talks is aptly titled Journey to the West. He believes that with a little nudge, everyone can be propelled in the right direction.
Taking his interest in psychology and counselling a step further, Darren wrote his first children’s book based on his practice in 2010. Entitled A Bowl Full of Ice Cream, his book was sold islandwide in bookstores such as Borders, MPH, Popular, and Kinokuniya. He has since gone on to author a couple more books on bereavement to help children and parents alike go through this tough time.
