What to do when someone dies away from home

We are happy to assist families who are in the unfortunate position of having to arrange a funeral for a loved one who has died away from home, or who requires taking to another destination for their funeral. We have repatriated to many countries around the world, returning people to their native country. We have particular experience with both Ghana and Italy. 

Taking a loved one home from the UK
It is possible to repatriate your loved one wherever they should pass away, be it in the UK or abroad.

If someone dies within the UK, we will arrange any necessary paperwork and personally collect their body from wherever they are.

Along with specialist repatriation partners, it is possible to return people to virtually anywhere in the world. Repatriation is mainly by air but we can personally transport the bodies of loved ones to Ireland and mainland Europe if that is the family’s preference.

Returning home within mainland UK
Many people wish to be laid to rest in their native town or county within the UK. We can make all the arrangements to facilitate this.

We will personally transport a loved one’s remains anywhere in the UK, giving families the peace of mind that they are being cared for on their whole journey.

Coming Home to the UK from abroad

If a loved one dies overseas we can make all the arrangements for them to be returned to the UK for their funeral. We can liaise with all the relevant authorities, both here and abroad, to help take as much of the stress away as possible. We take personal care right from the destination airport through to when they are laid to rest.
