About Us

A family owned and operated independent company. Alba Repatriation have been helping funeral directors and families repatriate their loved ones to and from Scotland for sixteen years. During that time, we have built an enviable reputation for reliability, reasonable costs and fast response

We are based near Glasgow in the West of Scotland. We are conveniently situated for all transport links to mainland UK, Ireland and mainland Europe.  Via our associates in London, Holland, Czech Republic, Poland, France and USA we can arrange repatriation to or from any country in the World.

When a person dies away from home it adds an extra layer of concern for relatives and raises all sorts of additional questions. What arrangements need to be made? How much will it cost? Are there any legal requirements? Do we need a special coffin? How long will it take? are just some of the many concerns that cause extra stress in such circumstances.

Alba repatriation have the experience to answer all of the concerns, and help funeral directors and families at such a distressing time.

We have considerable experience in dealing with all aspects of repatriation. Whether bringing someone home to the UK or transferring them home for burial or cremation in their own homeland.

We deal with all local authorities ensuring the correct documents are issued to allow a deceased to be transferred from Scotland, England, Wales or Northern Ireland. In Scotland we can also register the death should members of the family not be available. We will liaise with foreign Consulates to ensure the correct documents are issued and procedures followed to allow entry in to the receiving country and for burial or cremation to proceed. Through our many contacts in other countries we will arrange for the correct documents to be issued for the authorities in the UK and advise on procedures once the deceased arrives home.
