Whether you need to return your loved one to another country, or you wish to bring them home to Australia, we can help. There is much to consider with overseas repatriation but we have the experience and support you need to see your cherished family member returned home.
We have a detailed understanding of the specific requirements of repatriation, and we work together with trusted funeral homes in many overseas countries, to relieve you of the burden at this difficult time.
Some things will be different from a normal funeral when overseas repatriation is involved – full embalming will probably be required, there may be specific regulations around the type of coffin or casket you choose, and there will be legal documentation to sign.
We will be able to give you a comprehensive overview of costs and the process at the time of the Arrangement Conference, meaning there are no hidden costs to worry about down the track.
This means you can focus on your family and leave the complex task of arranging the repatriation to us.
Since the 1950’s we've been honoured and privileged to share in the most difficult time for more than 20,000 families, and to ease their loss in some small way. Read what they say about Timmins Funerals:

Thank you"Michael
