  • Note: Windhoek is the only crematorium in Namibia, thus carrying out cremations for the entire country. Death statistics are currently not available for the entire country, only for the City of Windhoek.
    No burial statistics are available for Namibia and to apply a cremation rate for the country using figures applicable to Windhoek would be misleading.
