Transporting Human Remains From the UK to Ireland

The Repatriation of human remains from the UK to Ireland. 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 UK destination and deliver them to anywhere in Ireland.

Airport Transfers and Ferry Crossings to Ireland

Global Funeral Repatriation offers a comprehensive international repatriation service to Ireland. Our all-inclusive price is based on the paperwork, transportation of the coffin and a flight or ferry crossing to Ireland.


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.

First Call & Quotation

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.

Repatriation Report

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 city or a location that is not close to home. Our family strives to take out the stress of getting your loved one home.

If your loved one has passed away in the UK and you require advice on getting them back home to Ireland then contact us today on 0330 175 7517
