About Us


Serving you since 1920.

Singapore Casket Company is today, the largest and most reputable funeral service provider in Singapore with the staff strength of more than 60 dedicated funeral advisors and directors. We are a wholly-owned subsidiary of InvoCare Ltd, which is Asia Pacific’s leading provider of funeral services listed on the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX). Altogether the company owns and operates funeral homes, cemeteries and crematoria around Australia, New Zealand and Singapore.

Founded on the 3rd of January 1920 by the late Mr John Hochstadt, the company not only survived the harsh times of World War II, but also thrived and expanded over the years because of the strong dedication from all our staff, and our commitment to provide personalised and professional services.

Although the company is now no longer family-owned, the founder’s grandson Mr Herman R Hochstadt continues to serve on the Board of the company as non-executive director. He is a veteran pioneering public officer of pre and post-independent Singapore and former Chairman and Director of several companies in Singapore and other countries.

Today, housed in its own six-storeyed building at 131 Lavender Street, Singapore Casket Company continues our tradition in serving all religions. Our specially designed facilities are installed with the aim of providing comfort and ease for bereaved families, helping them carry out ceremonial rites with utmost compassion.
