There may be times when families wish to send a loved one back to their place of birth.

How we can help
We have caring and supportive personnel who speak Spanish, French, Mandarin, Cantonese and Korean and can organise translators for other languages.
If necessary, we will contact the diplomatic mission in Australia to make the necessary arrangements.
Use our networks
Salvos Funerals have a large network of trusted funeral directors around the world who can assist us with caring for your loved one.
Transport of ashes
If a cremation takes place locally, the ashes can be brought back by a family member or shipped overseas or interstate. We can help organise this.
Once your loved one is safely back home, we can take them into our care and arrange the next steps.
We can organise a service according to your needs. This includes direct cremation, cremation with service, or funeral service with burial.
