The Most Expensive Funeral Home In Kenya And Why The Rich Are Taken There (PHOTOS)

The Lee Funeral Home, founded by John Stuart Lee, is the most popular funeral home for politicians and affluent people. Mr. Lee claimed in a local interview that Sir Charles Chonjo served as his inspiration.

Because the British High Commission solely trusted Lee Funeral Home, it gained favor among the wealthy. The powerful in the region of East Africa have visited the funeral home.


The funeral parlor in Nairobi costs 5,000 shillings for body pickup from a residence and 3,000 shillings each day for storage. Coffins cost between Sh35,000 and Sh130,000 at the funeral home, while Sh5,000 is charged for body handling, which includes washing and dressing. It costs sh 130,000 to transport the fabled Jaguar hearse within Nairobi.

After his parents returned to Britain, John Stuart Lee was born and raised in Nairobi. In 1964, he joined the main police force.

When he returned to Kenya in 1968, a new era for the nation's morgues had begun, with the City Mortuary serving as the principal facility and reportedly being in a terrible situation.
