What to do when someone passes away

Losing a loved one is a very painful process. When that person is in a different country, it can be even more challenging for your family. Once you know the circumstances of their death, the next step is to get them home.

This is where we come in. We manage all of the paperwork and the logistics to alleviate your stress and allow you to grieve. As a family funeral company, we are the global funeral repatriation experts that support you every step of the way.

Next, we need two official documents from you:
