The death of a loved one away from home can only add to what is already a stressful time, especially if it happens overseas where unfamiliar languages, local expectations and customs can be daunting when left to family members to deal with. This can be equally as overwhelming for international families whose wish is to have their deceased loved ones brought home.

Bowra & O’Dea Funeral Directors are specialists when it comes to Interstate and International Repatriation. Our qualified team liaise with both the family and the necessary government departments to take care of their needs in a timely manner. This may include Health Authorities, Customs, Insurance, Foreign Consulates and Translators for documents, if required. We have a firm understanding of cultures, customs and religions throughout the world and are known to work well with Consular and Embassy Officials.

You may choose to accompany your loved one, so they can be laid to rest in their home state or country, or have a local cremation service and then accompany your loved one’s cremated remains.

Our Bowra & O’Dea staff will be privileged to assist your family, and are only a phone call away.
Contact us on 61 (8) 9231 5199 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We also offer Skype calls by appointment, for people who are overseas.

"All staff went above and beyond to make my journey to be a smooth process. A credit to each and everyone of you for your professional, sympathetic, caring manner. I felt warm every time I entered the home and also felt I wasn't alone. Special thanks and big hug to Nikki, she is a credit to your services. I have already started telling people how wonderful you all are."
