For funeral shipping to the Philippines, our goal is to send the deceased off to the final destinations with great care and attention. Filipino burial customs differ from region to region. Though most people are now Christian, they still hold many of the nation's indigenous funeral customs. Wakes, which they refer to as lamay or padlalamay, can be held from 3 to 7 days depending on how far people are traveling. A vigil is held at either the deceased's home or a nearby funeral home. When it is time for the funeral, the coffin is brought in a hearse to the church or cemetery. For 9 days after the burial, the rosary is recited. Then on the final day, the family will gather for a meal.
When we ship to the Philippines for a funeral, we always keep these traditions and customs in mind. Bergen Funeral Services understands how stressful and upsetting planning all of this can be. This is why our staff will take care of it for you. We will be there every step of the way to give you expert advice on all the potentially confusing aspects of this service.
