International Repatriation Services UK / International Funeral Director

A team of dedicated professionals, and a network of International Funeral Directors for Repatriation Services in the UK.

At ECD International we understand how difficult it can be to negotiate all the legal and practical matters which follow the death of a loved one, especially when you are trying to deal with the emotional distress. It can be even harder when a death occurs in a foreign country.

Repatriation of human remains is a complex process requiring knowledge of the Law, Aviation procedures, Regulations and Handling Requirements in each of the countries involved. Unfortunately, Government agencies such as Embassies and Consulates are able to offer only limited assistance in these matters.

Lessons not learnt after the Vietnamese tragedy. Such sad news. It’s disgusting how some people monetise on vulnerable people #stoppeopletrafficking #stophumansmuggling ...

Just came across this photo and it always make us at ECD particularly sad.

On the 23rd October 2019, 39 Vietnamese were found dead in a container (men, women and children). They had all suffocated.

We were the repatriation company chosen to reunite the dead with their families in Vietnam. We also visited these families to personally offer them our love and support.

This will always serve as a reminder, just how desperate some people are to seek better opportunities for themselves and their families and at the other end of the scale, just how greedy some people are to exploit these vulnerable people by making money out of their journey, and in this case the tragedy that unfolded. RIP.
