Repatriations

Do you need to arrange the repatriation of the deceased outside of North Yorkshire? Maybe there is a family plot or strong emotional ties to another area? We can help arrange this.

For a repatriation of the deceased outside of North Yorkshire

We can arrange this. We are also experienced in organisating repatriations from or to Scotland.

For a repatriation of the deceased abroad

Outside of the UK, we work with specialist repatriation organisations. This is usually done by air. We can also arrange road transport to European countries.

Do you also deal with repatriations before a funeral?

Yes we do. Please take a look at our When someone dies abroad page for more details.

Danny Boy by Frederic Edward Weatherly

Oh Danny boy, the pipes, the pipes are calling
From glen to glen, and down the mountain side
The summer’s gone, and all the roses falling
It’s you, it’s you must go and I must bide.

But come ye back when summer’s in the meadow
Or when the valley’s hushed and white with snow
I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
And I’ll be here in sunshine or in shadow
Oh Danny boy, oh Danny boy, I love you so.

But when ye come, and all the flowers are dying
If I am dead, as dead I well may be
You’ll come and find the place where I am lying
And kneel and say an “Ave” there for me.

And I shall hear, though soft you tread above me
And all my grave will warmer, sweeter be
For you will bend and tell me that you love me
And I shall sleep in peace until you come to me.
