Registration of Death
When a person passes away to be with the Lord, a Certificate of Cause of Death (CCOD) must be obtained from the Attending Doctor. The death must then be registered at the nearest neighbourhood police post.

Upon registration, a Death Certificate together with a Burial Permit will be issued to the informant. In the case of Burial, the family must indicate choice of cemetery: Choa Chu Kang Cemetery or Christian Cemetery.

The Death Certificate is in duplicate. The original copy will be retained by the Police/Medical Records Office (MRO) and the duplicate copy issued to the family/informant.

The documents required:

a) CCOD issued by Attending Doctor
b) Passport and Identity Card of the Deceased (to be surrendered to the authorities)
c) No fee is required for registration of death.

Christian Burial

The Bible Presbyterian Church of Singapore buries their dead. It is acknowledged that there is no explicit statement from the Bible that categorically declares that we must bury only. But, like other doctrines, such as the Trinity and Infant Baptism, inferences from the Bible are sufficient to conclude that Christians should be buried after they die.

Our body is the temple of the Holy Spirit (cf.1 Cor 6:19), and God has promised us an incorruptible body (cf. 1 Cor 15:52) at the Second Coming of Christ. The Bible teaches that man is incomplete without a body. As long as the option to bury is still made available in land scarce Singapore, we the Bible Presbyterians in Singapore are constrained for the above reasons, to bury our dead who have died in Christ.
