History

Since the early 1970s, Tung Wah Group of Hospitals has been providing professional funeral services to the public in Hong Kong on a non-profit-making basis. Now Tung Wah is still the only charitable organization in Hong Kong that has her own funeral parlours.

International Funeral Parlour (IFP), one of Tung Wah's two funeral parlours, was opened in 1980. It has played an important role in our society for two main reasons: (1) the majority of Hong Kong's population are serious about the fulfillment of their filial duties and (2) Tung Wah's funeral parlours have all along been the only non-commercial choice in the funeral industry for the people of Hong Kong.

In 1999, IFP was computerized to cope with the modern needs and higher expectations of this particular traditional service. After two decades of relentless use, IFP has undergone a series of major renovations at a total cost of nearly 45 million Hong Kong dollars (i.e. over 4 times of its building cost in the late 1970s) during the first decade of the 21st century.

Objective

To provide reliable and affordable funeral services to the public on a non-profit-making basis.

Facilities

IFP has 4 big funeral halls and 16 reposing rooms to handle a maximum of 20 funerals daily. IFP is fully air-conditioned and lavishly renovated to suit the general purposes. It shares the use of 6 hearses and an 8-seat passenger van with Diamond Hill Funeral Parlour (DHFP), another funeral parlour of Tung Wah.
