If a family member or loved one dies abroad, there are several steps you must take before you can arrange the funeral burial service. The first thing is to contact your nearest Embassy, as they will be able to give you advice on how to proceed. Secondly, you will have to register the death in the country in which it occurred. Your Embassy will be able to assist you with this process and the information typically needed is full name, date of birth, passport number, where and when the passport was issued and details for the deceased’s next-of-kin. After the proper people have been contacted, you can begin making funeral arrangements.
A Burial Service Procedure that Honors the Deceased and brings Closure
You have several options when it comes to the funeral burial service. A graveside service allows family and friends to gather together and celebrate the person who has passed, while someone – typically a pastor – will talk about the life of the deceased. Graveside services are a way to pay final respects with dignity, honour and community support. Traditional burial and visitation allows people to say their goodbyes to the deceased, followed by the burial. Some families want to allow people to visit the casket before the burial, while others prefer to hold a funeral service after the burial takes place. If you’re unsure about which option is best, please consult with our team and they will be happy to talk through the different choices with you.
