Death abroad and repatriation to and from Finland

If a death has occurred overseas, or a death has occurred in Finland and the deceased is to be repatriated, Caritas Funeral Service can help through our international funeral business, Formin SOS Service.

Our office is situated close to the vast majority of foreign consulates and embassies in Helsinki. With a team of extremely experienced and multi-lingual staff, we can assist with repatriations to and from any country around the globe. We realise that arranging a repatriation can be particularly traumatic, given that in addition to the grief of losing a loved one there is also the concern of having to arrange travel to another country with the associated complication of the necessary documentation and permits. Our staff are fully familiar with these procedures and will guide you seamlessly through the process in order to ensure that the repatriation goes as smoothly as possible.

Burials in Finland

With an intense experience in the traditions of the Finnish funeral culture Caritas Funeral Service is one of the leading providers of both ground burial and cremation services in Finland with several affiliated funeral offices and other service outlets around the country. We provide coffins, urns, transportation and funeral notices and assist you in determining the time, place and type of burial ceremonies.
