History

Moura Undertakers is the one of the oldest family-owned funeral home in Mauritius with a combined 89 years of funeral service to the community. It was established in 1923 by Marcel Moura, a Hair dresser in Rose-Hill, he founded the enterprise when he noticed the difficulty encountered by the family when death occurs; he then started with coffin making.

 After his death, Marcel Moura was succeeded his two sons Benjamin and Richmond who worked hard to develop the business, and they modernized funeral services by importing limousines and hearses.  They were the first to introduce the Refrigerated Mortuary bed (canapé refrigerant) in Mauritius for a better conservation of the body; their commitment was to serve families by helping to commemorate the life of their loved one with dignity and respect. They have built a reputation of professionalism, honesty and compassion and their main goal was to educate and inform all of our families on the process of funeral arrangements, one step at a time.
