Planning a Funeral

 

Repatriation (UK) of the deceased to another country from the UK is fairly easy now as there are many more specialist Repatriation (UK) companies that can preform this duty that ten years ago.

The difference in the total priced charged for the Repatriation (UK) can be staggering so please make sure you get a couple of quotations.

Insist on a fixed rate freight charge and make sure all the Funeral Directors (UK) charges are known. More and more companies are offering an all inclusive Repatriation (UK) charge which should be much easier to understand.

If the Repatriation (UK) is to Italy, bear in mind that the whole process can take up to six weeks.

Simpler arrangement for Jamaica and the West Indies should take no more than a week.

The Funeral Director will obtain permission to remove the deceased from the UK from the local Coroner.

The information required form you to let the Repatriation (UK) of the deceased to proceed includes :-
Two copies of the death certificate - Obtained when you register the death.
Details of the consignee - the Funeral Director of person responsible for the collection at the destination airport.
Full payment - usually this is required prior to the Repatriation (UK).

Full embalming is obligatory as is the use of a zinc lined coffin or metal casket.




If the deceased died outside the UK

If the deceased was from England (ENG) or Wales

Register the death according to the local regulations in the country in which it took place, and get a local death certificate. Register the death with the British Consul, so that a record of the death will be kept in England (ENG). You will be able to get a copy of the death certificate from the consulate later, or from the:

Overseas Registration Section
Smedley Hydro
Trafalgar Road
Birkdale 
Southport PR8 2HH.

If the death abroad occurred in particular circumstances or the information about the death abroad is incomplete, this must be reported to a coroner in the same way as if the death occurred in England (ENG) or Wales. See the section on Coroners for more details of the circumstances.

If the deceased was from Scotland

Register the death according to the local regulations in the country and get a local death certificate. Register the death with the British Consul, so that a record of the death will be sent to Scotland; you will be able to get a copy of the death certificate later from:

The General Register Office for Scotland
New Register House
3 West Register Street
Edinburgh EH1 3YT
Telephone: (0131) 334 0380.

If the deceased was from Northern Ireland

Register the death according to the local regulations in the country and get a local death certificate. Register the death with the British Consul, so that a record of the death will be sent to Northern Ireland; you will be able to get a copy of the death certificate later from:

General Register Office

Holding a funeral abroad

You can arrange a local burial or cremation. The British Consul in the country in which the death occurred can register the death and a record will be kept at the registry offices listed above. 
 

Moving a body

Alternatively, you may wish to repatriate the deceased to the UK for cremation or burial. Most Funeral Directors (UK) should be able to advise you on the practicalities of the particular case and the likely cost. There are several firms that specialise in Repatriation (UK).

You will need an authenticated translation of a foreign death certificate - this must show the cause of death - from the place where the person died, and an authorisation for the removal of the body from the country of death from the coroner or relevant authority. You must contact the registrar once the body is back in the UK.
