Montezuma Monalisa Funeral Home Brief History

Montezuma Funeral Services Limited is a limited Company, which was established in 1992 initially as a Funeral transport company and later as coffin manufacturing company.
Monalisa Funeral Services Limited was established in the year 2001 to compliment the services of Montezuma Funeral Services Limited. In year 2007 Montezuma & Monalisa Funeral Services achieved their dream of opening ultra modern funeral home which is situated along Mbagathi way, Montezuma Monalisa funeral home.

These Montezuma & Monalisa Funeral Services have grown to be the most respected company in terms of having high quality hearses, coffins and services rendered to both local and international clients.
We are reknown for quality low cost and high cost coffins which we do not only supply locally but also to neighboring states.

We are the first company to come up with the first ever custom built passenger hearse in this region and indeed the entire continent. We have a fleet of various capacities i.e. 7 seater, 34 seater, 40 seater, Funeral Limos etc passenger hearses with special coffin compartments. These hearses have made funeral transport more manageable as it is more cost effective. Transport charges are based on zone radius from operating base.

On the side of coffins we manufacture high quality solid wood coffins i.e. meru oak, mahogany, camphor lined with satin material and imported coffin handles and wrap around handles. We have gone further by importing high quality coffins from overseas so that we satisfy the needs of our customers.
In the range of our coffins we have low cost, medium cost and high cost coffins covering the needs of all classes of mourners.

The inception of funeral home helped us to holistically provide all funeral services to our customers. We were able to add the following services:

  • Preservation of bodies
  • Transfer of human remains from hospital to mortuary
  • Embalming
  • Preparation and documentation of repatriation cases
  • Cremation and distribution of ashes
  • Handling bodies for preservation from overseas

This Funeral Home is equipped to handle both local and international clients who would like to experience conditions comparable to any international Funeral Home. Our Funeral Home has a capacity of 80 bodies preserved in a cold room backed by a standby compressor and generator making it impossible to have bodies deteriorating on account of compressor or power failure. We have therefore ensured that the bodies will be preserved in a sanitary state in which case you would hardly tell where the bodies are preserved, as there are no odours.

Since the promulgation of new constitution, there is expected growth in county levels. Montezuma Monalisa does not want to be left behind in providing these essential services to the people. So it is within our strategic plan that we start investing in counties. To start with, we have almost completed construction of a modern funeral home in Machakos town. Still in pipeline is Naivasha town where we are planning to build another funeral home.
It is also our future plan to develop a modern crematorium in the area we have set aside for this development. We are confident therefore we remain one of the most outstanding Funeral Home for now and in the near future.
