Keeping an urn at your home
Many people feel that they are better able to process their grief if they can remain close to the deceased after death.
In such cases, you may choose to keep the urn at your home instead of organising a burial in the cemetery. For this, you will require an official permit from the relevant municipality of residence (in Vienna, the MA 40). Our staff can advise you on the necessary formalities.
