Our experience spans 40 years of sincere work
Vilnius Funeral Home “Ritualas” continues its activity of the first civil burial service company in our country. The first block of the building at Olandų street was constructed and started its operations back in 1975; the second one was opened in 1986. In 2004, the Funeral Home was privatised.
The name of Funeral Home “Ritualas” was registered in August 2015.
During the four decades, we acquired valuable experience and gained trust of the people. Our company today is one of the largest funeral services companies in Lithuania and Europe. We provide the bereavement services, including bringing a body home, not only in our country, Lithuania (in Vilnius and other cities), but also abroad (we have experience in such countries as Belarus, Italy, Spain, Poland, Norway, Russian Federation, Sweden, the USA, Canada, and such Asian countries as Afghanistan, Iran, Pakistan, Syria, and others).
Today, Vilnius Funeral Home “Ritualas“ has over 50 employees, who are experts specifically trained for their jobs.
We respect every belief and every custom
We respect the faith of every individual; thus, we organise tailored visitation and burial ceremonies with the participation of catholic, orthodox priests or rabbis. We also provide ceremonies for non-believers.
We respect individual needs
Due to good visiting conditions, exceptional environment and high-quality service, the building of the Funeral Home at “Ritualas“ at 22 Olandų street has been used for bereavement services for former high-level politicians and other famous people of the country. However, it is not only the visiting place for VIP’s. If you order a smaller Funeral hall, a casket of a different kind, a simpler decoration of flowers, etc., you can save money and still get quality services and have a respectful bereavement ceremony. Besides, we provide these services not only in Vilnius, but also in other Lithuanian cities and abroad.
We protect the architectural authenticity and continuously renovate
Our main building where we provide the visiting services is located in the centre of our capital city. It is a big home for funerals – it has the floor area of 4,300 sq. m. and stands out for its architectural grace and smart details of the interior. One of the most famous Lithuanian architects of the XX-th century, Cheslovas Mazuras, designed the building.
We perform renovation on the exterior and the interior of the building with respect to its historic authenticity. In cooperation with the architect, Jūrate Jankauskaite, and having obtained a permit from Mr. Cheslovas Mazūras, we renovated the façade of the first block and three funeral halls in 2013. During the opening ceremony on April 4, the priest of the church of St. Peter and Paul blessed the halls.
In 2014, we renovated our shop, and renovated the second block with funeral halls 5, 7 and 10 in 2015. They have become more modern, intimate and comfortable.
At present, we offer 12 funeral halls, which differ in their size and the style of the interior. The height of the ceilings of 15 meters provides the halls with more solemnity. Relaxation rooms are adjacent to each of the funeral halls.
In order to assure total respect and quality services, we offer, alongside with the renovated gathering rooms, a range of new and improved services, and provide a wider choice of funeral accessories.
We are a responsible and open company
We practise the principles of honest business: we follow the laws and perform our obligations to our partners; we provide services for fair prices, and assure good working conditions for our employees.
In communication with the society, we encourage the people to cherish their lives, take care of their loved ones and help each other. In accordance with our capabilities, we participate in educational and sponsorship activities as well as in life-saving programmes.
