With the rapid growth of relatively cheap and easy travel more and more people go abroad for their holidays, others retire to warmer climes whilst others, due to our closer ties with Europe and expanding international trade, work abroad.
Unfortunately this inevitably leads to more British subjects dying abroad either naturally or from accidental or violent causes. In consequence we are requested to arrange funerals for these persons in his/her country.
Repatriation is the process of returning a person to their place of origin or citizenship. This includes the process of returning refugees or military personnel to their place of origin following a war.
We are on hand to help families, friends and communities repatriate their loved ones to and from abroad, to ensure your loved ones safe return home:
We can advise on documentation required and coffin and casket requirements, we will deal with UK authorities, embassies, consulate visits, freight booking services and delivery and collection. We understand what a difficult and confusing time it is when a friend or relative dies while traveling, living or working abroad.
