This is the time to be especially discreet, yet always attentive to all procedures.


Cremation, despite being an ancient process, only a few years ago was considered for use in Portugal. After the wake, the body goes in a funeral procession to the crematorium, where the body is reduced to ashes and delivered to the family in an urn intended for this purpose.


The exhumation of bodies is the act of digging up, whether due to overcrowding in cemeteries or for personal or judicial reasons. We have a multidisciplinary team, specialized in carrying out exhumations; we take care of all the bureaucracy up to the procedure in question.


The transfer consists of transporting the inhumed body or its bones to another place, after exhumation, to be cremated or buried again. We carry out body transfer services in Portugal, to Portugal and abroad.
