Cremated Remains Transport Services

Specialists in Ashes Repatriation

Sending Ashes Abroad? Thinking of having the Cremated Remains of your loved ones repatriated? At Cremated Remains Transport Services, we offer the shipping of ashes within the UK and also specialise in transporting ashes overseas.


Our services include UK Same Day, Next day and an economical 3-5 day. Import & Export, Air Freight and an accompanied service option.


We believe we offer an ethical pricing policy. Competitive prices and empathetic services specialising in the transport of cremated remains.


As you may or may not be aware, sending cremated remains in the post is not possible since The Royal Mail made Human Ashes a prohibited item in their network in April 2014. Our carriers will transport cremated remains through their network, and for piece of mind our prices are inclusive of our limit of liability (Details can be found on our terms and conditions). If you wish to utilise a same day dedicated vehicle for the transportation, we can obtain a competetive quote for you. 


During our 20 year establishment, we have found that with our guidance the whole process with the relevant documentation can be relatively simple.


We will send you specific packaging guidelines which will ensure remains are kept as safe as possible during transit and arrive at the destination signed for, intact and undamaged.

As we specialise in repatriating cremated remains, we believe we have the best expertise when is comes to transporting Ashes. For example, some companies insist on the same lengthy paperwork and regualtions for cremated remains as there is for the repatriation of bodies. Our familiarity with these regulations allows us to keep the costs well below that of a body repatriation.


As a Father and Son business we feel we have the appropriate knowledge and focus for your needs, and to ease any burden or stress through the process. If you require repatriation of bodies we can point you in the direction of our preferred service partner.
