We have been offering cremation services in Milan and the surrounding area for over 50 years.
You can rely on us to organise a dignified funeral and cremation in Milan: our experienced staff will take you step by step through all the phases to help you create a ceremony in line with your requirements.
Our extensive experience in the sector allows us to offer you comprehensive and professional cremation services. We are at your full disposal for the handling of all administrative procedures required by law, for the procurement of all the civic documentation required for cremation, for the organisation of the funeral, and for the subsequent transportation of the coffin to the crematorium.
To meet the growing demand for cremations, we use the Lambrate crematorium in Milan, the ten crematoria in the Lombardy region, and the Piedmont crematoria in Bra (in the province of Cuneo) and Valenza and Serravalle Scrivia (in the province of Alessandria). Cremation can be carried out either in a public or private crematorium. We recommend a simple pine coffin for cremation.
The ashes obtained from the cremation process can be placed in a niche in any cemetery in Milan, or entrusted to a family member. The person nominated by the deceased, the spouse or a relative within the 6th degree can request custody of the ashes. To obtain custody of the ashes, we will submit the necessary requests to the relevant municipal offices on your behalf.
If you wish to scatter the ashes, our staff will provide all the necessary civic documents. Scattering can take place in a cemetery, in nature – the sea, lakes, rivers, woods and mountains, for example – or on private property. The person responsible for scattering the ashes can be the spouse or other family member. The scattering of the ashes can also be carried out by a public official, by the executor of the will, or by the legal representative of the cremation association with which the deceased was registered.
