Our funeral home
Our history begins in 1957, when our first office
in the center of Athens was founded by Anastasios Papamakarios. It was the beginning
of a long family professional tradition in this field.
This office was the driving force for Anastasios Papamakarios to set goals and exceed them. His fellow citizens recognized his genuine nterest and his exceptional professionalism and consequently, in 1983 and 1994 two of his subsequent offices were opened.
This course continued at the same pace, and today we own 5 branches in Attica and the establishment of the European-style main offices in Pallini.
Valuable additions to the evolution of Papamakarios Funeral Services were the son and grandchildren of the founder, Mr. George Papamakarios, Anastasios Papamakarios, and Stylianos Papamakarios. One of the most important highlights was the replacement the previously known term "Funeral Home" with "Funeral Services", thus launching a new definition for the entire industry.
In the eyes of the Papamakarios family, funeral was a social service, not a profession. After all, our founder's principles were non-negotiable - quality, professionalism, care. In one word, anthropocentric.
Being devoted to the mentality we have been taught, we try to contribute to the social work of our municipalities, with donations of epitaphs and pro bono funerals when the need arises. We focused on providing a complete service, and as a result we now have the only vertical service unit in Greece n the field of ceremonies.
The premises are proprietary and designed to meet all the needs of the people who come to our offices, where they will be welcomed by our specially trained personnel. We have our own fleet of vehicles to ensure the quality for which we are known.
Today, the name “Papamakarios” equals quality and reliability. As of today, our operations are based on respect, discretion, and personal care. People have always been at the center of our work. In essence, these are the elements responsible for making Papamakarios Funeral Services known all over Greece and establishing collaborations with even funeral homes abroad.
Our pillars are the human-centered approach and the continuous evolution. Therefore, we continue to carry out our work, which is based on our extensive experience and unparalleled quality of our services.
All our efforts aim towards the creation of a safe environment where negative experiences will be replaced, as far as possible, by moments of farewell and remembrance.
We strongly believe that trust is a value that is built steadily over time. For this reason, we invest in our human resources. Our entire team is known by its genuine interest, acquired knowledge, discretion, and professionalism.
