Death in a nursing home or hospice

If death occurs in one of these facilities, you do not need to call a doctor, that is done by the staff on site. Please ask, if possible earlier, if the old people’s home or hospice is able to keep a deceased person until we have completed our formalities (usually it is 1 working day).

If the facilities do not have suitable refrigeration facilities,If the facilities do not have adequate refrigeration equipment, please contact us and we will pick up the deceased as soon as possible.

What's next?

Even if it is difficult for you, there are many things to think about. We take care of the formalities for you and help you where necessary.

Please also prepare the clothes for the deceased.

Then you should decide on the type of burial. Should it be a transfer to Poland and a burial, or a cremation with an urn transfer?

If you have any questions, please call us anytime!

The phone is available 24 hours a day +48 608-135-247

Documents Required to Obtain Death Certificates

In order to get accurate information about the required documents for the transport of the body, we need to know where the death occurred. Each country has its own procedures and requirements regarding overseas repatriation.

If we know the place of death, we can provide you with detailed information and request the necessary documents from national and international authorities.

First, you will receive a form that authorizes us to process your case and contains all the necessary information about the deceased (personal data, place of residence, place of death). Once the form is returned to us, we will begin the entire return of the body to the country. Registration documents required for a death certificate are: birth certificate and marriage certificate (if applicable to the deceased). If you do not have the necessary documents, we can apply for them at the relevant registry office. Another document is the death certificate, on the basis of which we apply for a permit to transport and burial a deceased person in our country.
