Repatriation

Bereavement can be even more stressful when a loved one dies while abroad. Our repatriation service aims to give you as much peace of mind as possible at a time of mourning. We take care of everything, transporting the deceased in a dignified manner, bringing them into our care and liaising with all necessary authorities on your behalf.

As part of our complete repatriation service, we can arrange for the collection of the deceased from any part of the UK and transport to and from any country in the world.

Through a network of agents, we arrange for the removal of the deceased from hospital, complete all relevant documents and permits, supply a simple coffin for transportation purposes only and transfer the deceased to the airport. If needed, we can arrange for translation services for death certificates.

Once in the UK, we arrange for handling at the airport for the deceased to be collected from the aircraft and for the completion of all documentation to proceed through customs clearance. We will then transport your loved on to our funeral home or to a private residence of your choosing.
