Funeral Repatriation Services

The death of a loved one away from home can add to an already stressful time.

Especially if it happens overseas where unfamiliar languages, local expectations and customs can be daunting for family members.

Our funeral directors are specialists when it comes to planning and organising interstate and international repatriation. Every day we meet with families and communities from varied and different walks of life. Sensitivity and respect for cultural diversity is something we pride ourselves on.

how can we help?

Our qualified team liaise with both the family and the necessary government departments to take care of their needs to ensure the funeral repatriation service is carried out in a timely manner. This may include liaising with 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 consultants are here to answer the many questions that will arise and guide families through arrangements to create a loving and final tribute to best honour the life of their loved one. Please don’t hesitate to contact us, we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
