How It Works

We are with you every step of the process





Coffin Selection


For International repatriation we have available a selection of suitable coffins. For
repatriation within the UK and Ireland we are happy for your selected funeral director to
supply a coffin suitable for your local custom. In this event we will transfer your relative or
friend using suitable regulated transfer equipment.

Direct Cremation


In the event that it is not possible to repatriate your loved one to their homeland we can
carry out a cremation in Scotland and return the cremated remains. This can be an attended
service or an unattended direct cremation. We have available coffins suitable for both types
of service. Following the cremation, we can arrange for the cremated remains to be
returned to the deceased homeland or these can be delivered to the relative or friend in this
country. For international repatriation of cremated remains we can also provide a personal
attended transport service.

Direct Ashes Transport


Cremated remains within the U K and Ireland are transported personally by our trained and experienced staff in our own vehicles. We do not trust these valuable and personal remains to outside carriers, and they will be delivered directly to your home address or another of your choosing. A time for delivery will be agreed so the cremated remains will be handed over directly to you or your receiving agent. If you are instructing us to deliver to someone other than yourself, we must receive the instruction from you in writing.
