The Deceased was of Christian Faith. On Monday morning by 8.30 we had effected the removal from a hospital in London and our Embalmer was on hand to prepare for the repatriation. In the meantime our Client had registered the death and we had applied for the Out of England. The Coroner issued this within an hour!

Extremely fast repatriation to Pakistan
Extremely fast repatriation to Pakistan

What a weekend! As the MD of Mears Repatriation I don't generally get to perform the actual hard work that my Operatives carry out on a day-to-day basis. But, due to Holidays and location of my staff at the weekend I carried out the Repatriation of a Pakistan National within 36 hours of their death this weekend. The family had managed to register the death within five hours and it was then up to me to get the Coroners permission to remove from the UK.

Lost funeral photo of my Grandad working
Lost funeral photo of my Grandad working

So, clearing out some old files this week and found this lovely old photo. I think that this is a photo of my Grandad bearing at a funeral in the 1930's. As a third generation Funeral Director it's great to have this record. It's recognised throughout the trade that both my Grandads were well known Funeral Directors. One in Westminster and one in and around the Clapham area in South West London.
