Turkey, officially known as the Republic of Turkey, is a transcontinental country located mainly on the Anatolian Peninsula in Western Asia, with a smaller portion in Southeastern Europe. It has a population estimated to be around 83 million people. Turkey has a rich cultural heritage, historical sites, and diverse landscapes. The official language spoken in Turkey is Turkish.

The presence of British or Irish people in Turkey is relatively significant due to its popularity as a tourist destination, retirement spot, and work opportunities in sectors such as tourism, education, and business. Many British or Irish expatriates choose to live in Turkey for its unique blend of East and West, warm climate, and cultural experiences. They contribute to the local economy, engage in various industries, and enjoy the vibrant Turkish lifestyle.
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 Turkey, Rosy International's Turkey team is ready to assist in repatriating their remains (including ashes) back to the UK or Ireland. We can arrange collection from Istanbul, Ankara, İzmir, Bursa, Adana or any other specified location in Turkey.
Conversely, turkish individuals can be found throughout the UK, with larger communities in cities such as London, Manchester, Birmingham, and Glasgow.
