After a death: Registration, The Coroner


Traditional Funerals


Bringing a Loved One Home from Outside the UK

We have repatriated loved ones from all corners of the world, either on behalf of the family or an insurance company. We will guide you and keep you informed throughout the process.

Whether the death occurs whilst on holiday, working, or where domiciled outside the United Kingdom, a simple telephone call to our repatriation specialist, Simon Williams, is all that is required to ensure the safe return of your loved one.  We will liaise with the funeral director at the place of death, together with all relevant authorities.

Once a return flight has been arranged, we will dispatch our private ambulance to receive your loved one into our care.  On your behalf, we will deal with the protocol of informing the Coroner that we have repatriated someone from abroad.

It is advisable that you instruct us regarding the funeral arrangements at the earliest opportunity, and we can then proceed with these once we have permission from the Coroner to do so.
