Finland is a country located in Northern Europe, with a population estimated to be around 5.5 million people. It is known for its pristine nature, saunas, and the Northern Lights. The official languages spoken in Finland are Finnish and Swedish.

The presence of British or Irish people in Finland is significant due to cultural exchange, educational opportunities, and work-life balance. Many British or Irish expatriates live in Finland for work, particularly in sectors such as technology, education, and healthcare. They contribute to the local economy, engage in cultural exchange, and enjoy the natural beauty and quality of life offered by Finland.
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 Finland, Rosy International's Finland team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Helsinki, Espoo, Tampere, Vantaa, Oulu or any other specified location in Finland.

Why repatriate a body/ashes back to Finland?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to Finland, 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, Finnish culture often emphasizes a strong connection to nature and family. Being buried in Finland allows individuals to be laid to rest in natural surroundings, maintain connections with their homeland, and participate in Finnish burial customs. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.
