Important things to note about Repatriation:

If someone has died in the UK and you wish to bury or cremate them in another country, the death will need to be registered in the country where the person passed away, it is a legal requirement.

The arrangements that need to be made after this stage are extremely complex and, although there is no legal requirement to do so, a funeral director would almost certainly be contacted to complete the process of gathering the necessary paperwork.

The funeral director will liaise with the coroner to gather the relevant documents needed to arrange transportation which are:

• A “free from infection” certificate

• An embalming certificate

• An “Out of England” certificate [or fiscal certificate in Scotland]

In addition to the aforementioned documents, those wishing to transport a loved one need to provide the person’s passport or a photocopy of it.
