    CanI book a flight for my brother’s ashes to be brought to Manchester airport from Verona, Italy? The funeral home will deliver the ashes to the airport with all documentation and I would collect from Manchester.

      Hi No it doesn’t work like that – you would need a specialist courier. Sorry. This is the page you need – https://scattering-ashes.co.uk/services/transporting/

      Hi Tracey
      I would advise speaking with Easyjet directly as I am not certain they will accept this urn through security. Easyjet contact page: https://www.easyjet.com/en/help/contact

    If you take the ashes in your hand luggage, as these considered to be your on-board ‘allowance’ or can they be in addition? Would I have to pay for them as extra luggage?
    I am travelling to Crete with easyJet in September.

      Hi Tina
      They would need to be within your cabin baggage allowance. However I believe you can upgrade your hand luggage with Easyjet to be able to bring two items on board with you.
      Best wishes

    Does the death certificate have to be original or can it be a copy

      Dear Angela
      It is preferable to have the original. However I have never had anyone report to me that they have problems with a copy of a certificate. I am sure you understand I can’t give a definitive answer.
      Kind regards

    Thanks for the info as I had no idea how I could take my sisters ashes with us to Benidorm as the last thing she wanted to do was to get a holiday we had no problem at the airport and the staff were very respectful and made it very easy for us to go through with my sisters wishes

      Please could I ask Cathy, what ‘container’ did you have them in? Did it have to be non-metallic?
