Repatriation of Mortal Remains:

We assist the bereaved family and next-of-kin with the road or air repatriation of the mortal remains of beneficiaries to a funeral home closest to their normal place of residence. Repatriation is arranged when the deceased’s body is more than 100km from their place of residence, within South Africa and neighboring countries i.e., Lesotho, Namibia, Mozambique. All the arrangements to transport mortal remains as requested by the family are managed and special care is taken to consider particular customs and beliefs.
