Sierra Leone is a country located on the western coast of Africa, with a population estimated to be around 8 million people. It is known for its natural beauty, including pristine beaches, rainforests, and wildlife. The official language of Sierra Leone is English, and the majority of the population practices Islam or Christianity.

The presence of British or Irish individuals in Sierra Leone is relatively limited. However, there may be British or Irish expatriates residing in Sierra Leone for various reasons, such as working in development projects, volunteering, or conducting research. They contribute to the country's development efforts and engage in activities related to their respective fields.
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 Sierra Leone, Rosy International's Sierra Leone team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Freetown, Bo, Kenema, Koidu, Makeni or any other specified location in Sierra Leone.
Conversely, sierra Leoneans 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 Sierra Leone, if needed. In the subsequent sections, we will delve into the process of bringing your loved one back to Sierra Leone from the UK or Ireland.

What happens when Sierra Leoneans die in the UK or Ireland?

If your loved one is an Sierra Leoneans 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 Sierra Leone, 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 Sierra Leone?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to Sierra Leone, 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, Sierra Leonean culture often places importance on family and community ties. Being buried in Sierra Leone allows individuals to remain close to their loved ones, honor their Sierra Leonean heritage, and participate in traditional funeral practices. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.

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