Your questions, our answers
Yes, even when death occurs in hospital, the body may be transported home after completion of the usual formalities. Preservation and care are recommended, but not mandatory. If the passing away takes place at home, our advice is to entrust it as soon as possible to the custody of a funeral home where the best conditions of maintenance are in place.
Burial consists of placing the coffin containing the body of the deceased under the ground, either directly or in a grave, and possibly placing a memorial over it to mark the grave and turn it into a place dedicated to the memory of the deceased and meditation. Cremation is the burning of the coffin containing the body of the deceased in a crematorium. After cremation, the ashes are collected in an urn, which may be buried or its contents scattered, depending on the family's choice.
In the event of death, the procedure is as follows: First, the death must be declared and a death certificate prepared. If the death occurred at home, the death must be certified by a doctor. If the death occurred in hospital, the medical personnel will take care of it. If the death is due to an accident or suicide, it is advisable to contact the police station. The next step is to register the death by contacting the municipality where the death occurred within 24 hours. If the death occurred in a hospital or nursing home, staff can take care of it. The registrar will then draw up the death certificate and provide you with several copies, which you will need to transfer the body. Finally, the funeral ceremony must be prepared according to the wishes of the deceased, expressed orally or in a will. Our professionals can help you organise the ceremony according to your wishes, be it burial or cremation, with or without a religious ceremony.
Repatriation is a complex process and can vary depending on the destination and circumstances of the death. It is therefore important to work with an experienced funeral home to guide you through the process and ensure a safe and legal repatriation. Repatriating a body involves numerous authorisations, such as local police authorisation and legal and health permits. We can help you obtain these authorisations and coordinate with the local authorities to ensure that the repatriation is conducted legally.
When a loved one dies, the coffin is their final resting place, so it is important to choose one that respects their last wishes and suits your preferences. The choice of coffin depends on a number of factors, such as the type of tribute you wish to pay, personal values, the budget available or the religion of the deceased. There is a wide variety of coffins available, in different types of wood, cardboard or even lead, which can make the choice difficult at a time of mourning. It is therefore advisable to take into account the type of funeral you wish to organise in order to choose the most suitable coffin. The cost of a coffin depends on a number of criteria, such as shape, thickness, material used and optional accessories. When faced with all this information, it can be difficult to make a choice. Our consultants can help you find the most suitable coffin for your needs and budget at this difficult time.
The term burial refers to the interment of the body of the deceased.
A death certificate is an official document with which a doctor certifies the death of a person. When death occurs in hospital (in 75% of cases), a doctor at the hospital takes care of the declaration. If death occurs at home, it is traditionally the doctor treating the patient who issues the death certificate, although any doctor is authorised to do so. This document is essential to initiate the legal, administrative and memorial processes related to the death of a loved one.
Cremation is the incineration of the body in a crematorium.
Chosen by most families after the death of a loved one, the funeral home is the ideal place where to be close to the deceased before the funeral. Until the day of the ceremony, we provide you with warm and private spaces that allow you to watch over the deceased at your pace, from a few minutes to several hours, day or evening. So that this moment is as peaceful as possible, you can choose to personalise the space as you wish (flowers, music, etc.).
