All arrangements can be made by telephone, fax/email and post. No visit to our office is required.

We will, if requested, dress the Deceased in their own clothing once embalmed. As the coffin required will not need to be zinc lined, viewing can be offered by the Local Funeral Director upon arrival in Ireland.

A simple gown can be provided for use during the repatriation to allow for dressing in Ireland by the Local Funeral Directors if requested.
