Benin is a country located in West Africa, with a population estimated to be around 12 million people. It is known for its rich history, vibrant markets, and the birthplace of voodoo religion. The official language spoken in Benin is French.

The presence of British or Irish people in Benin is relatively limited. However, there may be British or Irish expatriates residing in Benin for various reasons, such as work, education, or personal connections. They contribute to the local economy, engage in cultural exchange, and appreciate the cultural heritage and traditional practices of Benin.
In the event of the most unfortunate circumstances, should an individual from England, Wales, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Ireland, or any non-native origin pass away in Benin, Rosy International's Benin team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Cotonou, Abomey-Calavi, Djougou, Porto-Novo, Parakou or any other specified location in Benin.
Conversely, the Beninese community in the UK is relatively small. They may be dispersed across different regions, but London is likely to have a small Beninese community.
In the event of the passing of your beloved in any of the mentioned cities above or elsewhere, we stand ready to assist you in repatriating your loved ones remains to Benin, if needed. In the subsequent sections, we will delve into the process of bringing your loved one back to Benin from the UK or Ireland.

What happens when Beninese die in the UK or Ireland?

If your loved one is an Beninese national and died in the UK or Ireland, it is essential to register the death with the local council to obtain the official death certificate. Should you desire to lay your loved one to rest in Benin, you would need to contact an International Funeral Director, such as ourselves, to initiate the repatriation process back to Afghanistan.

Why repatriate a body/ashes back to Benin?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to Benin, especially if they were just visiting the UK or Ireland. In such cases, we strongly advise reaching out to the travel insurance company as they typically provide financial assistance. Other reasons why you may prefer repatriating your loved one back to Afghanistan include, Beninese culture places importance on ancestral ties and the continuity of family heritage. Many individuals choose to be buried in Benin to honor their roots, maintain connections with their ancestors, and participate in traditional burial practices. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.

Please be aware that repatriating a body to Benin, usually requires the deceased to be an citizen or originate from Benin.

In addition to our services, our Benin repatriation specialists can offer valuable recommendations for the best places to scatter ashes: Ganvié, also known as the "Venice of Africa," is a village built on stilts in the middle of Lake Nokoué. It can be a culturally significant and tranquil location to scatter ashes.
