If the Coroner is satisfied with the cause of death they will issue a certificate usually to the funeral director. This certificate can be presented to authorities to allow removal of the body out of the country.
If a body needs to be returned to Ireland
If a body is brought back to Ireland the Coroner will not usually be involved unless the person died in unnatural circumstances abroad.
What you need to do
If the person died in unnatural circumstances, the Coroner who is appointed to the district that the body is brought to needs to be informed.
The Coroner will grant authorisation to the Funeral Director for the burial or cremation of the body. In some cases, the Coroner may direct a post mortem examination (or an additional examination) of the body.
