Good afternoon, I am sorry to hear of your situation. The doctors should be abe to give you the contact details of a local funeral directors, if they cannot then you will be able to find these on the internet with a Google Search. I would think they will need quite a lot of fees in advance.
Regarding his Will, who are the executors? I assume that all of his assets are in Johannesburg?
In that case the executor should make the funeral arrangements and repatriation of the ashes. They will also administer the estate based on the fact that your Uncle is a resident of South Africa.
