When you lose a loved one it can be distressing enough, but when it happens outside the City of Sunderland or abroad it is made even more stressful and painful with different rules, regulations and laws to deal with.

That’s why we at John G Hogg do as much as we possibly can to take away the stress that other authorities put on the bereaved.

We deal directly with the Coroner, Consulate, Embassies and any other professional bodies dealing with a death outside the area. We will liaise with all the appropriate authorities in arranging repatriation of your loved one and arrange all necessary documentation needed for the family and for the funeral to go ahead once back in Sunderland.

What Our Families Say Of Us

I would just like to thank you and your team for all you have done for Jimmy and our family. When dad passed away you came and took all the stresses away. It was a beautiful day, one we will never forget. 22 years ago the Hogg Family took care of Frank Canavanagh, then Molly. No change, still as compassionate as ever. We as a family would look no further than to use this beautiful family business for all our needs.
Late Mrs Breen
