Deaths overseas

If the deceased passed away overseas, the Hospital in that area will deal with the initial processes required. Returning the deceased to the Island for the funeral is formally known as 'repatriation'.

We have considerable experience in repatriation, not only to and from the United Kingdom, but also worldwide. We are in regular contact with Funeral Directors on the mainland in organising such arrangements.

If a person has died whilst visiting Guernsey, and requires transportation to their place of residence, we can make the necessary arrangements to have the deceased transferred as required.
