If your loved one has passed away overseas or wishes to be buried abroad, you can find comfort in our comprehensive repatriation services at Stinsons of Whitwick.
With years of experience in providing funeral and repatriation services, you can rest assured that we can help you arrange the most fitting farewell for your loved one, wherever they are or wherever their chosen resting place is in the world.
If you require us to arrange repatriation services to the UK, we will need:
- The passport of the deceased
- An English death certificate
- A coroner’s permission to remove the body – whichever country their body may be in
- Statement from the coroner – which explains the nature of their passing
If your loved one wishes to be repatriated from the UK, we will need their death certification and we will be able to organise the rest.
Repatriation takes between 5 and 7 days if the death was by natural causes. If the death was unexpected and suspicious, repatriation could take between 10 and 15 days to bring them back to the UK.
To discuss the careful transportation of your loved one, contact our family-run funeral directors to learn more about our repatriation services and to start planning their funeral arrangements. We serve those located in Leicestershire, including Coalville, Loughborough, Ashby-de-la-Zouch and all of the surrounding areas, and are available 24/7, 365 days a year via telephone, online contact form or directly at our funeral home.
