Repatriations are so important to families when a loved one dies abroad, it can seem a somewhat daunting prospect on how to have his or her body repatriated to Scotland for the funeral. On the other hand, when a loved one has died in Scotland, but the funeral is to take place elsewhere in the world, the process of getting your loved one to their final destination is not without its challenges.
At Malone & Fox, we offer a comprehensive repatriation service to convey your loved one to or from anywhere in the world. We have an in depth knowledge of regulations, permits and requirements needed for shipment to or from any country.
We will make all the necessary arrangements with Consulates and embassies on your behalf as well as arranging and booking flights and taking care of all legal requirements.
The vast majority of overseas repatriations are by air. We will organise a flight and the next of kin and funeral director (if overseas) will be advised of the time of arrival of the coffin.
We have many important points of contact with funeral directors and Embassy personnel in most overseas countries, and as a family business we are very proud to be able to guarantee that you will receive our personal attention at all times.
