Funeral Plans

                     Living in Thailand may be one of your choice for retired foreign peoples , most of the answer when we asked why Thailand , Thailand is beautiful country , people are nice , smile , low cost of living etc.

                     From 7 year experiences that we have been taking death care of the foreigners. There have been the question in my mind what will happen if one day the death have arrived,of cause the family member will appoint local funeral directors like our company to taking care for the funeral but is that deceased’s funeral wishes ? That is one question and another happens when unclaimed deceased was keptat thehospital until over time limit. The deceased will be sent for burial at the graveyard as unclaimed deceased. These deceased is must be someone’s loved one. Why let this happen to them…

family2                     Should you prepare your own funeral plans ?And how good if your funeral can reflect your wishes.And how good if you can freeze the funeral costs at today’s prices no matter how much the funerals will cost in the future.

Repatriation service

                     Siam Funeral provides deceased repatriation service for foreigners. In the mean of who are not Thai citizen and unfortunately died in the Kingdom of Thailand. These may need to have body repatriation services. Body Repatriation sounds like engaging with transportation, airline, logistic but in fact it is also involved with a funeral director and almost it should be funeral directors works.

                     A part from documents preparation and airline managements which I will tell in the next part.

                     Why does funeral director play an important role in deceased repatriation service ?

                     It is acceptable for almost country in the world that a funeral director is one of professional , This is applied in Thailand as well for whoever engage in repatriation service, but believe me today (17/12/12)for Thai funeral for Thai ,we do not need funeral a director ,I will talk about this in next chapter.

                     Funeral director takes care of the deceased once we are called for service ,24 hours a day , 7 day a week , more often funeral director is woke up at night by the telephone call from abroad to get the information and deceased details or giving a quote.

                     The team may divide into Embalmer , Chauffeur, Bearer. Funeral directors do their best on everything that doing with deceased , embalm , dressing , make up, cleaning , disinfection etc. …..All the works on body are hygienic practice and will be ruled by airline regulation. (IATA)

                     The deceased will have to be in good condition for viewing purpose before burial or cremation once he or she is transferred to their home. But in some circumstance the viewing ceremony is not suggested , family will be informed by a funeral director. Honestly In Thailand , we have limited in some resources.

                     These are the role of our funeral directors. In fact funeral director is not engage only the body’s preservation ,in some case our funeral directors engage with personal effect , belongings that need to return with the deceased ,I will talk about this later.

Cremation service

                     Cremation is considered to be a lower cost than repatriation but it need to have a very clear instruction by writing and it must come from family member or embassy. Siam funeral is Thailand Funeral home that can provide most cost effective.

                     Cremation is a very common way of disposing for Thai Buddhism. And It is the other option for bereaved family. Family can also choose how to do with the cremated remains , Scatter ,Burial ,return the ashes to family abroad. In Thailand the deceased will be cremated at temple.

                     The basic service that necessary for cremation are coffin, deceased transportation, dressing, ashes urn, preparing the deceased , death certificate, temple. One of the most important things for cremation is death certificate. In Thailand we cannot cremate the body ,if we do not have death certificate and the death certificate will tell where and which temple the body is cremated and we have to go to that temple. So that means we have to know where to have the body cremated before death certificate arrangement. This is the answer why we provide the temple.

                     This basic package service ,once funeral transportation from hospital to temple have done , the deceased will be placed into coffin and bring to crematorium at the temple. 4 Buddhist monks are invited and chanting around 30 minutes , the coffin will be placed to the oven and cremate, in the next day the ashes can be collected and placed into the brass urn for transportation , all procedures will be handled by funeral director.

                     Some family choose to have Buddhist funeral ceremony before cremation, that mean family will travel to Thailand for attending with some friend in Thailand. After funeral transportation from hospital to temple. The deceased is placed on the bed at temple hall for water rite then place into coffin. The coffin will be at the funeral hall for Buddhist chanting by Buddhist monks. Chanting ceremony will normally start at night 7.00pm to 8.00pam.It could be 1 day , 3 day ,the most is 9 days. Funeral director will take care of every night of ceremony until cremation. With these chanting funeral service ,it may cost more than repatriation body to their home land.
