Bereavement can be even more stressful when a loved one dies while abroad. Our repatriation and international funeral service aims to give you as much peace of mind as possible at a time of mourning. At Vale Funeral Services based in Barry, Vale of Glamorgan, we take care of everything from transporting your loved one in a dignified manner and bringing them into our care to liaising with all necessary authorities on your behalf.
Bringing Your Loved One Home
As part of our complete repatriation service, we arrange for the collection of the deceased from any part of the UK and transport to and from any country in the world. Through a network of agents, we arrange for the removal of the deceased from hospital, complete all relevant documents and permits, and supply a simple coffin for transportation purposes only as well as transferring the deceased to the airport.
If needed, we can arrange for translation services for death certificates. Once in the UK, we then organise the handling at the airport, such as collecting the deceased from the aircraft, and the completion of all documentation to proceed through customs clearance. We will then transport your loved one to our funeral home.
As independent funeral directors, we also offer advice and guidance on different types of funeral as well as coffins.
