Worldwide Repatriation Service

From Abroad to Ireland

When your loved one passes away abroad and wishes to be buried or cremated here in Ireland, an extra dimension of painful difficulty can present itself to the grieving family. But, by contacting Ollie Burns & Sons Funeral Directors, we can take care of all the necessary arrangements for you. We liaise directly with the relevant authorities on an ongoing basis in order to arrange in having the remains of your loved one brought home, as soon as possible. We will ensure that all of the paperwork is in order, and liaise with transport authorities to facilitate smooth flight details. After collecting the deceased from the airport, we can organise for your loved one to be embalmed, if necessary, to facilitate family viewing in Ireland.
