When a loved one has passed away and cremation has taken place away from the family home or when someone has requested that their ashes be interred or scattered at a special place, we are on hand to offer you choices when it comes to the transportation of their cremated remains.

We believe that the family of the deceased will expect, require and deserve the cremated remains of their loved one to be transported in a caring and respectful manner and therefore we offer a fully accompanied service door to door thus allowing the funeral director to assure the bereaved family and to give them peace of mind.

Our team have over years of 100 years’ collective experience within the funeral industry and can organise collections from all UK locations for onward delivery both within the UK as well as Internationally if required.


Delivery to UK Mainland Destinations

Families will understandably be hesitant to place the cremated remains of a loved one in the hands of someone they do not know. Our bespoke, dedicated service across the UK assures families with confidence that their loved one’s ashes are in safe hands.

We are in full control of the safety of the ashes and we are able to provide you with the name of the driver who is in care of your loved one’s ashes from collection through to delivery.

We hope that knowing this will give the family and friends of the deceased peace of mind. We believe in supplying a first-class service with attention to detail and focussing on the needs of our clients.

Delivery of Cremated Remains to International Destinations

Carry on service

As with delivery within the UK we are able to arrange fully accompanied repatriation of ashes to most countries in the world, this would of course involve the courier hand carrying the ashes on board a plane to the destination and therefore carries the relevant cost implications, but we are more than happy to give you an idea of what this may be, please contact us and we will provide you with a quote for this to be carried out.


There are other more cost-effective options available for the transportation of Cremated Remains Internationally and we would be happy to discuss your requirements and explain the processes.

The process

Cremated Remains can be collected from the Crematorium or from the Funeral Director. In some cases, it is a requirement that the delivery destination is another Funeral Home, Crematorium or Cemetery but we can advise you on all the requirements and guide you through the process if you would like to contact us with the collection and destination details. Certain paperwork is necessary for International shipments to meet customs requirements, and this will be fully explained by our staff at time of booking.
