Abadi Funeral Home began as a company producing caskets under the name “Abadi Casket Company”, it was founded on May 15th, 1965 by Mr. Adi Widjaja. The Company also handled funeral services at the deceased’s family’s residence since at that time there were no funeral homes in Jakarta or in Indonesia for that matter. Under Mr. Widjaja’s leadership the company grew rapidly and became well-known throughout Jakarta and its surroundings. Here in Jakarta region, the Company became the primary choice for the provision of caskets including for the first president of Indonesia, Ir. Soekarno.
In 1986 the Company began rendering funeral services at Jl. Daan Mogot No 353, Grogol Petamburan, Jakarta Barat, starting with two (2) rooms. Abadi Funeral Home became the first project example in Indonesia and together with the Cemetery Division of the Local Government of DKI Jakarta studied the benefits of funeral homes in Indonesia.
