Our Repatriation Department – recognised as the industry leader among Victorian Funeral Directors – has decades of experience in dealing with the added complexity of a death overseas and the task of returning the deceased home to Australia.
Equally, we have extensive experience in repatriating someone who has died in Australia back to their country of origin. This will involve co-ordination of all documents from coroners, embassies and airlines.
We will also attend to the preparation of the deceased to ensure a dignified presentation should the next-of-kin wish to view on return to the country of origin.
Please note that some Travel Insurance Schemes will arrange the repatriation to the country of origin without cost to the family.
