Transporting Home Across The World

Sparrow is experienced in the transport of human remains (whether casketed or cremated) to anywhere in the world. With our location in Greenpoint, Poland is a frequent destination, but we have also been responsible for sending loved ones home to South America, Africa, Jamaica and Puerto Rico.

Many of our families have had a viewing and mass in New York and then brought their loved one home to be celebrated a second time and buried in their home of origin.


Sparrow will ensure all documents are properly translated and executed with the embassy and shippers for transport. Sparrow then works with the shipper and funeral home at the desired location to ensure your loved one is cared for from beginning to end. The process can happen as quickly as three days or longer, depending on what the family’s needs are. If no funeral will occur in New York, we offer up to 5 family members to come and say a final goodbye to their loved one before we return them home to their country of origin.
