SINGAPORE - When his 84-year-old mother died in February, Mr Sunil Kumar approached funeral firm Rajoo Casket to carry out arrangements, including to bathe and embalm her body in readiness for cremation.

As Rajoo Casket did not have its own embalming facility, the body was taken to Fook Sow Undertaker at Block 89 Geylang Bahru for the embalming process, said Mr Kumar, 54, who owns a trading company. The funeral was later held at another parlour in Geylang Bahru.
