When a loved one dies overseas, we are here to help. We are experienced in reuniting families and will handle every aspect on your behalf. Our caring team offer a supportive approach and will advise you on the steps you need to take.
The death will need to be registered in the country in which it occurred. The British Embassy, high commission, or consulate will be able to help you with this. In some cases you may be able to register the death with UK authorities. Take a look at the government website about what to do when someone dies abroad for further guidance.
When you are in possession of the death certificate (translated if necessary), we can begin our repatriation funeral services.
In some cases, a cremation may be arranged in the country where the person died. The ashes will then be released to the family to convey home. We can then arrange a funeral service to celebrate the life of your loved one upon your return to the UK.
We can also repatriate the body if you intend to have a burial or cremation in this country. To do this, we will seek permission to commence the repatriation process.
