Our funeral home in Bahnhofstraße 71 in Voerde is an oasis of calm amid the hustle and bustle of urban life. Behind the sleek façade lies a series of generous, inviting rooms that create a secure environment in which to pay your last respects. In our experience, people soon find they feel safe and comfortable with us – which also helps them to speak openly in such a difficult situation and make the big decisions that must be made.
We’ve called our funeral home Casa Vitam Admittamus – a Latin name that seems a little lengthy at first but expresses perfectly what this special place is all about: the word “admittere” means both “let in” and “let go”, so ours is a house of admitting and permitting transit. As living people, our only perspective on death is from one side – the side of life. In our view, death is a very important part of life.
Designing our funeral home, we consciously focused on the needs of the deceased’s family members. Our open-plan reception area welcomes visitors and makes them feel at ease, while our private meeting room offers a more intimate atmosphere for personal consultations. And then there is our room of remembrance, with which we are trying to revive the tradition of the wake as a way of giving family and friends the time and space to take leave of the deceased. Our funeral hall can be used for funeral services with up to 60 guests.
