Coffin transport

Coffin transport

The need for transportation varies depending on where the death occurred, where the ceremony will be, and whether there will be a burial or cremation.

Usually, transport is needed from the receiving chapel to the ceremony location – and from the ceremony location to the cemetery or crematorium.

For ceremonial transport, a funeral car is always used with space for one coffin. For other types of transports, stretcher and chapel cars are also used with space for several stretchers and coffins.

When a death occurs at home or at institutions that do not have storage facilities, we must collect the deceased and transport the coffin temporarily to the nearest hospital or receiving chapel.

We also assist with the transport of the coffin between countries through repatriation, over longer distances domestically and abroad. This includes assisting with all practical matters relating to the repatriation of foreign citizens who die in Norway.
