Taking care of all aspects of repatriation

When a loved one dies abroad, expectedly or not, it’s not unusual to be completely overwhelmed by the idea of negotiating the rules and regulations or organising the repatriation. At B W Funeral Directors we have vast amounts of experience in repatriation services and will be able to guide you every step of the way. Much of the paperwork and organisation will be taken care of by our funeral directors, making things simpler for you.

How long does repatriation take?

This question can be difficult to answer as much of it depends on which country the person passed away in. Time zones, paperwork requirements and methods of travel can all make a difference too. We understand that the wait can be frustrating and emotionally challenging at an already difficult time, but we will keep you informed every step of the way.

Repatriating out of the UK

As well as bringing people home from abroad, we can also help to organise repatriations out of the UK too. We’ll take care of all formalities including notifying the coroner and ensure your loved one is prepared carefully for a safe journey. Our funeral directors can also help you arrange transport and communicate with the relevant authorities in the destination country.

We’ve worked hard to earn an outstanding reputation

“Barry and John were so kind to my family following the sad death of my dad. They were professional, helpful and friendly. They took very good care of my dad and I will forever be grateful for the care they took to make a very sad time as easy as possible. I would 100% recommend them.”
