Default Funerals

I am so glad someone has asked this question. My husband and I have discuseed this as we plan to retire to Paphos next year. We have not seen any funeral directors or cemetary when we have been there. We both decided we would like to be cremated in Paphos if possible. I have discussed this with my family and they agree with us. Hope not for a long time yet!!!!

I may opt to be repatriated back to the UK, cremated then ashes left for kids to do what they want although I have suggested some scattered over here, but I think it is important that they have a place to 'visit' you in the UK, if it is what they desire.

No doubt there will be more updated info to follow.
hI there,just to let you know,that my husbands friend died,in limassol,he was living on his own,he died of cancer,his son lived in england,just before my husband friend died,the hospital,told us to to try and find his son,so we did manage to phone him,he made it to see his dad alive for one day.
when he died,the son wanted to creamate his dad,but in cyprus they dont do it,so he said that he would,take him back to england to have it done,so i took him to a furneral parlour,at the back of st nickolas church ,in griva digenis on the oppesitte side of the cemetary,he is very good he did all of it for us ,he had the coffin delivered to england and from there the coffin gets dilivered to which furneral parlour you want,he does it all for you.It cost 3,000 euros for everything.
Over here you just go to a furneral parlour and they do it all for you,you can buy the plot for about 750euros if you dont want tobuy the plot,they bury you,but after 3years they take the bones out,and give them to you,then they bury some one else in the plot,the cost of the furneral,was
nearly 4,000 euros.I hope that helps.regards teresa.x

Thank you for the update.

How bizarre to reopen the plot etc......

That settles it, UK here I come, not for a while yet I hope though.!

Eh, I just cant believe for the life (or death) of me, that they just dig dem bones up and hand them back to the family

Although I can entertain the idea having having a neighbour after 3 years or so, as previously mentioned
