Cold Storage

A cold storage facility is available which can accommodate six bodies at any one time.

Moving & Handling Equipment

The facility caters for the moving and handling of the body through the means of hydraulic and manual lifting apparatus and transportation trolleys.

Multi-Purpose Room

A small area has been provided which can be utilised for multiple purposes. An important note to remember is that GLMCC Funeral services do not allow any communal gatherings in any of the Masjid prayer halls.

Vehicle (Ambulance/Hearse)

Transportation is an essential part of a funeral service. GLMFS currently do not provide a hearse. Transportation of the deceased is made through the means of a private ambulance.

Coffins/Caskets

According to the Islamic tradition and the Sunnah the deceased must only be buried in a shroud. However, we must also adhere to the rules and regulations of the local council which requires burying the deceased in coffins/caskets

The Shroud (White Cotton Sheets)

Shrouding the body is obligatory based on the commands of the Prophet (peace and blessings of Allah be upon him). GLM Funeral Services provide a plain thick white cotton material (non- transparent) to shroud the decease.
