Dying Abroad & International Relocation of your Loved Ones

Mills Funerals, London, has many years of experience in repatriating loved ones to and from all parts of the world. Our committed staff will take care of the vast amounts of paperwork required to repatriate your loved one. As part of our service we are happy to visit the relevant departments that are needed to make the journey possible like embassies, consulates and the foreign office. Our staff will also help you choose a suitable coffin for the journey that will meet the regulations for the airline and country.

If requested, family members can usually fly on the same flight as the deceased. When making the arrangements it is necessary to provide a death certificate, the deceased’s passport and the details of the funeral director in the receiving country.

When you are faced with the death of a loved one overseas you should contact their insurance company first. They may be able to take care of all the arrangements for you. You can also contact the British Embassy in the country. They may also be able to assist in appointing a local funeral director in that country.
