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.
What happens on the day of delivery?
Collecting at an agreed time we will transport the ashes to the required destination, be it to another funeral director, crematoria or directly to the family. If delivery is required at a specific time, we will arrange this for you too.
At point of delivery the driver will be dressed in a company suit and will introduce themselves at the door. They will hand over your loved one’s ashes and ask you to complete a receipt, a copy of which will be handed to you and another copy will be retained for our records. There will also be a certificate of cremation returned to you with your loved one’s ashes.
