We normally work with members of the Deceased Family to ensure that the repatriation to Azerbaijan happens in a speedy yet professional way.
We understand that in Azerbaijan the structure of 'Funeral Directors', as in the UK, does not exist and these duties are normally performed by members of the extended family of the deceased.
To this end we have made arrangements, with the relevant Airlines, to be able to consign the Deceased to a private individual, (the person responsible for collection and care of the deceased from the airport in Azerbaijan).
In the UK washing and preparation can be carried out in the Local Mosque and we can transport form there or we can arrange this at one of our partner Mosques for you.

You will be able to track the 'on going' status of the
repatriation by using a unique reference number
with our Repatriation Progress Tracker.
Embalming is carried out as it is a legal requirement but our professional embalmer understands that this is to be kept to a minimum and be as light as possible.
We would normally use Azerbaijan Airlines as the flight is direct and it is fairly easy for family to book and travel on the same flight as their loved one if they wish.
An evening flight is booked which lands early in the morning allowing burial before sunset.
We will inform you of the flight details as soon as possible so allowing you to book your own flight tickets on the same flight if desired.
We have been asked, by the Embassy, to fax all documents to them as a mater of courtesy, although not a requirement.
