The Colonial Funeral Home in New York City will open its doors to families this month, a year after the business was originally slated to close its doors for good.
The owners of Colonial Funerals in Manhattan’s Chinatown will open their doors to the public for the first time on Monday, September 6, 2018, to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the closure.

The new facility will be the second in the city to offer the services of funeral homes, which include cremation and interment, under a $2.3 million investment from a Chinese billionaire, Li Hongjun.
The facility has a capacity of 400 people, according to the company’s website.
The Colonial Funery and Funeral Service will offer burial services, as well as embalming services for the families who are buried in the cemetery.
In addition, it will offer an interment service for families who have been cremated and buried, and the use of a funeral home for a funeral service.
