Funeral Repatriation from England

England - the homeland of Shakespeare and The Beatles, is part of the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.
The capital of England, London, is a modern multinational city located on the Thames River, the cultural center of the country. Ukrainians also come here in search of a better life and destiny. But, unfortunately, fate does not smile on everyone, and deaths of our compatriots also happen abroad.
The loss of a loved one is grief for relatives, especially when it happens abroad, so if a Ukrainian dies in England, the following actions must be taken.
