About Repatriation


Our repatriation service is designed to provide a service of the highest standard for the bereaved.

Bringing a loved one back to Ireland or to the United Kingdom

When someone dies abroad it is often the family’s wish to have that person brought back to Ireland or the UK. This may seem like a daunting task but McAtee Funeral Directors have wide experience of receiving coffins from all over the world and will be able to help and guide you every step of the way.

We also recommend the:

The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust

The Kevin Bell Repatriation Trust aims to alleviate the financial hardship of bereaved families repatriating the body (bodies) of loved one(s) who have died abroad in sudden or tragic circumstances back to Ireland.

Repatriation From The United Kingdom

McAtee Repatriation Group has a wealth of experience in repatriating people from the UK and other countries. In particular we have strong links with funeral directors in Ireland. Whatever the circumstances we will make the process as smooth and as easy as possible.

As well as dealing directly with families, we also work with other funeral directors and insurance companies.

Repatriation By Road

As an international repatriation company we have our own staff and especially equipped vehicles for a speedy repatriation process to and from countries accessible by road. Lower costs and less administrative challenges allow for a speedy and less expensive repatriation process. This also allows us to transport your loved ones directly to any location of your choosing and does not require for you to make arrangements for a funeral director to pick up the remains from a destination airport. This is the service that we recommend to most families.
