Our Family Proudly Serving Your Family For Over 150 Years


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 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 local Coroner that we have repatriated someone from abroad.

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

*Holiday insurance will often cover the cost of repatriation to the UK.
