  • Urgent: Transport company for human remains (ashes)

    I'm turning to PSB because google and the whitepages has failed me.

    My uncle passed away last week and was cremated, as part of his wishes he wanted a small urn of his ashes sent back to the UK (ashes finally going back to england lolz), trouble is, Fedex, DHL and TNT will not carry them, and haven't been very helpful in the direction pointing arena.

    Anyone have any experience, numbers etc etc?

      Human corpses may only be accepted for carriage provided they are accompanied by a Death Certificate issued by the appropriate authorities in the country of death. All laws, ordinances or governmental rules and regulations in the country of departure, transit and destination regarding carriage of human remains must be complied with. As the stated rules are generally complicated and subject to frequent revisions, shippers can obtain all advice from the appropriate authorities involved.

      Uncremated human remains must be contained in a soldered inner coffin of lead or zinc, which is inside a wooden one to prevent damage, and covered by canvas so that the nature of contents is not apparent. Cremated human remains must be shipped as funeral urns that are efficiently protected against breakage by cushioning packing. An additional Cremation Certificate from the crematorium is required.

        I was under the impression that as long as you had a copy of the death Certificate and a copy of the Authority to Scatter the ashes you can ship it via nay method you want.

        You mortuary should be able to help you.
        You put the c*nt in country run

          Cheers for the link(s) Mark, We did most of it through a funeral director, but as they were being split, and the details were not all sorted out, long story short, this part of the trip has been left up to me to arrange

          Cbr1k - That's what we thought too.
