About Rowland Brothers International

Established in 1873 as family funeral directors, Rowland Brothers International (RBI) has been at the heart of global funeral repatriation since 1971. RBI was established when holiday companies recognised the need for a commercial repatriation strategy to reunite loved ones with their families after a fatal tragedy abroad.

With increased leisure travel, the need for commercial repatriation strategies has become a necessary requirement. RBI initially focused on repatriation to the UK from overseas holiday resorts, but now the International Office repatriates loved ones to and from the UK, or any other point of origin and destination worldwide.
