Tracking Tool

As soon as you trust us with your repatriation from the UK to overseas, we will give you a reference number which you can use to track its progress. We detail every stage of the process so you always know what is happening. You can see an example here.

To use the tool, simply enter the reference number into the box and press the "Track" button.

We will also send you an email with a personalised link to your dedicated tracking page that you can share with family and friends, making it easy to keep everyone updated.

The tracking tool is used for outgoing repartitions from the UK only

Transportation of Ashes
and Cremated Remains


At Mears Repatriation we offer a secure service for the transportation of Cremated Remains, (Ashes). For 90% of UK address to any other UK address we charge just £340.00+VAT. For the other 10% of cases we will give a full quotation. This service can take a few days as we incorporate it into our drivers schedules.

This assumes that the remains are packaged and ready for collection.

If we hold the Cremated Remains we will pack and label the remains. If not then the representative who collects them will label.

For an additional charge we will place the remains into a cremated remains casket, these cost between £80-£250+VAT, with a name plate to allow the remains to be kept at home or indeed buried in a Cemetery or placed in a Crypt.

If the remains are to be scattered then this is not necessary but you may want to look at our range of scatter tubes.


Overseas transportation of Cremated Remains:-


Due to new regulations Cremated Remains can now only be transported as far as the overseas airport. Then collected by the family or local Funeral Director.

The cost is usually between £350-£540 for European destinations and £630-£950 for the rest of the world.

    A word of caution

    We have been made aware that a number of freight forwarding companies are sending Cremated Remains and Ashes through National Carriers such as TNT, Royal Mail, & UPS etc...

    None of the major carriers now accept Human Remains, which ashes are classed as, through their network.

    So if a freight company says that the ashes can be sent as 'personal effects' please be aware. It might seem cheap, but there is a reason behind the regulations.

    We at Mears Repatriation are full members of the National Association of Funeral Directors and care, transport and repatriate Cremated Remains in a manor that is in keeping with the Association's code of practice.
