Spain is a country located in southwestern Europe, with a population estimated to be around 47 million people. It is known for its rich history, diverse cultural heritage, and vibrant festivals. Spain has several official languages, including Spanish, Catalan, Galician, and Basque.

The presence of British or Irish people in Spain is relatively significant due to its popularity as a retirement destination, holiday spot, and work opportunities in sectors like tourism, education, and real estate. Many British or Irish expatriates choose to live in Spain for its pleasant climate, cultural experiences, and lifestyle. They contribute to the local economy, engage in various industries, and add to the multicultural fabric of Spanish society.
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 Spain, Rosy International's Spain team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Madrid, Barcelona, Valencia, Seville, Zaragoza or any other specified location in Spain.
Conversely, the Spanish community in the UK is quite extensive and can be found in various cities, with larger communities in London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Glasgow.
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 Spain, if needed.
