Our comprehensive repatriation service accommodates all religious denominations. We understand the requirements & regulations for the shipment of human remains.

We are recognised by the majority of the Consulates & Embassies in London. We have in depth knowledge of their customs, permits, and coffin regulations that need to be adhered to.

We care for the next of kin and relatives during their short stay in London to register the death and provide Chapels of Rest if required. We assist the relatives at the airport, ensuring they check in on time and take them through passport control making sure they are safely on the plane. We also ensure the airport chapel is made available to them.
