Global Funeral Repatriation operates a 24 hour, 365 days per year caring, repatriation service from the Europe to the UK. Our family are available to take your call whenever you need us. We are able to transfer the deceased from anywhere in Europe back home to the UK either the same day or the next day. We can arrange all the necessary paperwork required and will liaise with any third parties such as funeral directors at the destination.
We specialise in the repatriation of human remains from Europe to The UK. This service can include the movement of human remains in the form of cremated remains. We only ever offer a personal service, whereby a member of our family will collect the ashes or remains from any destination in Europe and deliver them to anywhere within the UK. We do not utilise third parties such as postage, parcel, or logistics companies.
Global Funeral Repatriation offers a comprehensive international repatriation service from anywhere in Europe to the UK. Our all-inclusive price is based on the paperwork, transportation of the coffin and a flight into any main airport in the UK.
We have our own paperwork that is made available to you following a repatriation. We complete a ‘First Call & Quotation’ document, and a ‘Repatriation Report’ document.
This document is used to outline all requirements that you have, it specifies all documents required of you, and us in order to repatriate; legally, effectively, and preparatory with a future funeral service in mind. This document also outlines the quotation as discussed with you, broken down for your advice.
This document specifies all of the details of the person who has passed away. It acts as a checklist for paperwork that we are required to collect on your behalf, logs and jewellery or property that we handle, and requires a signature from third parties to countersign the information on that document (e.g. a member of staff at a hospital where we collect someone who has passed away), justifying that the person has any jewellery or property at the time that we attended.
Then a third party at the location where we take the person who has passed away to, will sign to take custody of those items listed, out of our care).
Both documents are duplicated meaning that we can leave one copy with the person that we hand over to upon disembarkation. We can then email or post copies upon request.
We understand how distressing the passing of a loved one can be, especially if they have passed away in another country or a location that is not close to home. Our family strives to take out the stress of getting your loved one home quickly, efficiently and with the upmost respect and dignity.
If your loved one has passed away in Europe and you require advice on getting them back home to the UK then contact us today on 0330 175 7517
