A private client contacted SpeedLink in November to arrange for the carriage of her mothers cremated remains from a funeral home in Germany. The individual that passed away was originally from the UK but died in Germany. The client was anxious to get her mothers ashes back to the UK as Germany has very restrictive regulations governing the possession of ashes. The client wanted her mothers ashes repatriated back to Britain where there are no restrictions. The urn was collected on one day, and transported to the UK and delivered the following day.
