Repatriation of Body from Scotland

Repatriation of remains from Scotland to England and to anywhere else in the world is a complex process with different paperwork to that in England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Working with Homeland International for the repatriation of remains from Scotland ensures you are working with a company who understand the unique requirements and processes to repatriate your loved one to their homeland, wherever that may be worldwide.

We often support funeral directors and families with the repatriation of remains from Scotland to England on a regular basis and understand the paperwork requirements to enable repatriation to go ahead. Some embassies, which do not have a presence in Scotland, require the paperwork and sometimes the coffin to be taken to their London based embassy before repatriation, which we can support with too given our nationwide reach.

How Body Repatriation from Scotland works:

Repatriation of remains from Scotland to England is completed by road with our ambulance teams.

Often, funeral directors are unable to support with removals from Scotland so they contact our company to support with these removals over a longer distance. We can arrange the paperwork if need be and then once everything is clear we can arrange the repatriation from Scotland to England.
