On India’s west coast, Mumbai is a highly populated metropolis. There are people commuting to Mumbai from nearby cities like Pune, Kalyan, Nashik, Ahmednagar, and others. There are also people travelling to Mumbai from faraway states and cities such as Bihar, Himachal Pradesh, Punjab, and Uttrakhand. People come to the city of dreams for many reasons including education, job opportunities, medical treatment and other things. With this many people residing in the city, the number of death rates might be quite high as well. Mumbai is the sixth most dangerous city in terms of traffic accidents, implying that the city requires more ambulances.

What to do after your loved one has passed away in Mumbai?
When we lose someone we love, the world around us comes to a halt. To deal with this issue, we must first calm down and consider the next course of action. The first step is to contact the individual who is concerned and advise them of the problem. Make a plan for where the body will be carried or transferred.

What is the procedure to transport a dead body from Mumbai to Uttrakhand?
In this instance, the most critical procedure to perform is a postmortem. We’ll make arrangements to go to the nearest hospital and have a postmortem performed there. The incident will then be reported to the nearest police station, which will get a postmortem report.
A deceased person can be conveyed in one of two ways:
- Transportation of the Dead by Road
- Transportation of the Dead by Air
Road Transport of Dead Bodies from Mumbai:
Last Journey will assist you in gathering all necessary documentation once the doctor has confirmed death. If the dead body must be transferred within 500-600 kilometres of Mumbai, we prefer to carry it via road. To avoid decomposition, the body will be transferred from Mumbai to another location in a freezer-equipped mortuary truck (Dead Body Vehicle with Freezer Box) at a low cost.
Transporting a Dead Body by Air from Bangalore to Uttrakhand:
Last Journey’s on-ground ambulance will transport the deceased to the nearest domestic airport after completing the necessary paperwork (mortuary ambulance).
Documents that must be ready for the deceased body to be flown out of Mumbai:
- The hospital issued a death certificate.
- A letter of authorization from the local police force.
- Certificate of Embalming
- Certificate for the Coffin Box
- A photograph and an identification card (original passport, driver’s licence, or Adhaar card) issued by the appropriate authority.
- The person who will receive the coffin at the destination’s contact information and address.
- No Objection Certificate
Important: Make sure the documents are in English and please have atleast 6 photocpoies of each.
Last Journey will help you in arranging these air cargo documents. One the cargo clearance is done, we will send the mortuary ambulance to transport the dead body to the destination. All these complete procedures will be taken care by our team itself without any delay and will be done at the best price.
How to make sure the last rites happen on time?
Funeral Service is a culture that honours and remembers the deceased via numerous monuments, prayers, and rituals.
Choose a location for cremation:
Cremate a person in the city of death (Mumbai) or in the city of his or her birth (Uttrakhand).
In Mumbai, how do you choose the type of funeral service you require?
- Electric Cremation
- Wood Burning Cremation
When Last Journey receives a request for a funeral service in Mumbai or any other city in India, we will verify the death certificate and other paperwork, look for a nearby cremation facility, and make a slot reservation. We appoint the priest and proceed with the rest of the processes based on the caste. If the deceased is a woman, we shall investigate her marital status and proceed as necessary.
