The Gambia is a small country located in West Africa, with a population estimated to be around 2.4 million people. It is known for its beautiful beaches, wildlife reserves, and vibrant culture. The official language spoken in The Gambia is English.

The presence of British or Irish people in The Gambia is significant due to historical ties, tourism, and development projects. Many British or Irish tourists visit The Gambia for its beach resorts, wildlife safaris, and cultural immersion. They contribute to the local economy, engage in various recreational activities, and support community development initiatives in The Gambia.
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 Gambia, Rosy International's Gambia team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Banjul, Serekunda, Brikama, Bakau, Banjulinding or any other specified location in Gambia.
Conversely, gambians can be found in cities like London, Birmingham, Manchester, and Leeds.
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 Gambia, if needed. In the subsequent sections, we will delve into the process of bringing your loved one back to Gambia from the UK or Ireland.

What happens when Gambians die in the UK or Ireland?

If your loved one is an Gambians 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 Gambia, 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 Gambia?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to Gambia, 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, Gambian culture often emphasizes strong community bonds and a sense of national identity. Being buried in Gambia allows individuals to remain close to their loved ones, honor their Gambian heritage, and participate in Gambian funeral customs. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.

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