Repatriation Service World Wide – Taking the UK, and specifically London, as an example.

Repatriation of a deceased person from any part of the UK can be organised completely by Ward’s Funeral Home, in Ireland, removing the need for the family in the UK having to contact a funeral director there. This makes the entire process simpler and more cost-effective.

The actual transfer of the body can be done in one of two ways:

Option 1 – Ward’s Funeral Directors oversee the entire process

Ward’s collect the deceased in the UK and accompany it home to Ireland. This option allows for one or more family members to accompany their loved all the way home.. Read more…

Option 2 – A UK-based funeral director looks after arrangements in the UK and Ward’s look after arrangements in Ireland

The UK-based funeral director sends the remains home, by air travel, where they are met by Ward’s, and transferred to the preferred place of repose. Read more…

Please note that with both options, at least one family member has to be present in the UK to register the death.
