Repatriating Human Remains

Repatriating Human Remains

It is not something anyone wants to be faced with, but if you are unfortunate enough to have to deal with this personal and distressing situation then you will want the support of a company with the specialist knowledge, professional expertise and compassion to make this difficult time as stress free as possible.

At Aerona (Air & Sea) Customs Clearing we have acted on behalf of a number of bereaved families and funeral directors to repatriate both human bodies and cremated ashes.  It is a service that we fully understand and one that we treat with diligence, sensitivity and urgency to avoid any upsetting delays.

Although we will require all the legal documentation in advance to authorise our involvement, we can liaise on your behalf with funeral directors and HMRC officials in order to relieve you and your family of unnecessary involvement and distress.


Our extensive experience also means that we can arrange the necessary customs clearance whilst overseeing all the complex procedures and it is a service we provide 24-hours a day, 7-days a week, 52-weeks a year.

If death has occurred outside the EU we are still able to arrange the customs clearance of human remains at either Manchester or London Heathrow airports.

Please be assured that at all times we endeavour to treat families and their loved one with the utmost dignity and respect.
