Sri Lanka, officially known as the Democratic Socialist Republic of Sri Lanka, is an island country located in South Asia, with a population estimated to be around 22 million people. It is known for its stunning landscapes, ancient historical sites, and vibrant cultural traditions. The official languages spoken in Sri Lanka are Sinhala and Tamil, and the majority of the population practices Buddhism.

The presence of British or Irish people in Sri Lanka is relatively significant due to its popularity as a tourist destination, retirement spot, and work opportunities in sectors like hospitality, education, and development projects. Many British or Irish expatriates choose to live in Sri Lanka for its tropical climate, natural beauty, and cultural experiences. They contribute to the local economy, engage in various industries, and enjoy the unique lifestyle of the island nation.
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 Sri Lanka, Rosy International's Sri Lanka team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Colombo, Galkissa, Moratuwa, Jaffna, Negombo or any other specified location in Sri Lanka.
Conversely, sri Lankans can be found in cities such as 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 Sri Lanka, if needed. In the subsequent sections, we will delve into the process of bringing your loved one back to Sri Lanka from the UK or Ireland.

What happens when Sri Lankans die in the UK or Ireland?

If your loved one is an Sri Lankans 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 Sri Lanka, 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 Sri Lanka?

There are several reasons why you might wish to repatriate your loved one back to Sri Lanka, 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, Sri Lankan culture is diverse, with various ethnic and religious groups. Burial practices can vary among different communities, but many individuals choose to be buried in Sri Lanka to fulfill religious obligations, be laid to rest near their families, and honor their cultural heritage. Regardless of the reason we are here to help.

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