OVERSEAS OR INTERSTATE DEATHS
With more people choosing to travel, it is not uncommon for a death to occur outside of Australia or your local area. Repatriations are arranged by the funeral director who will deal with the families wishes and arrange for their loved one to be repatriated to their place of birth overseas. Please make immediate contact with us to commence arrangements with governing authorities, and to attend to any legal or customs requirements.
Some individuals and families wish to return or have their loved one returned to their homeland for burial.
This involves many hours of preparation and liaison with Australian Government Departments and the Consular Office of their home country. In addition to caring for your loved one, we are able to administer and attend to all the necessary documentation on your behalf.
For more information regarding repatriations overseas, please contact us on 03 9726 8724 or 0423 009 836.
