Reliable Cremated Remains Transport

To give you peace of mind, we’ve detailed below what cremated remains transport from SpeedLink involves. This means you know what to expect at all times, and can be sure that our cremated remains transport services are right for you.

Transporting cremated remains involves:

  • Obtaining the full address, contact phone number and opening times of the collection and delivery points
  • Ascertaining the time-frame you require the shipment to be completed
  • Providing you with a tailored quotation and advising a transit timeframe†
  • Once a service is selected, an up-front payment by credit or debit card, BACS, Chaps, SEPA or similar electronic funds transfer is required to confirm before a cremated remains courier is dispatched to collect
  • A booking confirmation will be forwarded to you by email with the above collection and delivery details as well as dates, times and additional services selected. An invoice will also accompany this email
  • You will then be notified by email when the shipment has been collected, is in transit, and then when it has been delivered safely. Telephone notification is also available if required


¹ While shipments are waiting at our international hub in the UK for the next scheduled movement, cremated remains are held in a secure area at our facility under lock and key, similar to the holding lockers found at funeral homes and crematoriums. Our facilities are manned 24 hours a day, seven days a week by on site security personnel and monitored by CCTV.

² For transport by air or rail and some sea crossings - urns, containers or scatter tubes must be made of a material that allows for x-rays to penetrate to receptacle such as cardboard, plastic or wood to facilitate the security screening process. Death & Cremation documentation must accompany shipments using these modes of transport even within the United Kingdom.

³ We recommend that death and cremation certificates (or local equivalents) travel with the shipment in case they are required later at the delivery point.

† Additional services such as a timed delivery, splitting of ashes for transport to different locations or even the addition of an Ashes Scattering Ceremony can be added. Please ask our team for more information.

I was responsible for seeing that my friend's cremains were sent from the U.S. to the UK. The process seemed overwhelming until I contacted Speedlink. With great kindness and efficiency , David immediately took charge, informing me every step of the way. All I had to do was hand her cremains to him. I highly recommend this person and his company.

I had a wonderful Lunar New Year Day on 10/2/2024 thanks to the very expeditious, timely and careful services of SpeedLink in facilitating, collecting and delivering my late parents' cremated remains from Hong Kong to the cemetery in London. SpeedLink helped to facilitate the timely dispatch from Hong Kong, immediate pickup upon arrival at Heathrow at 05:30 on the Lunar New Year Eve, and safe delivery to the cemetery well before 14:00 the same day. I embrace the feeling of my parents coming close to me from across the globe. Thank you SpeedLink!
Team I Cheeky Pies
We hired SpeedLink to transport a big machine from the UK to Germany. The communication was absolutely perfect, fast and professional! The company picked up the goods at an auction site, organised the transport and done all the customs papers for us. Fast delivery and everything went more than easy. Highly recommended. Thanks a lot!

I'm just so fortunate that I came across this company and David there. He personally took from England to Ireland, mum's ashes and scattered them exactly where I had requested. He did everything I asked. His communication was outstanding. He exceeded my expectations and made it all so comfortable for me. His thoroughness and sensitivity was priceless. Thank you so much.
