I know little about the sending aspect of cremated remains - my brother-in-law handled that in SA - but I do have experience of receiving cremated remains at the freight terminal at Heathrow. The main consternation was that they required, in addition to my personal id, proof that I worked for a registered courier company. Which I did not.

It took a lengthy "I'll have to check with my supervisor" visit to the back office, which I imagined ended with an abrupt "it's human remains of a family member, of course he doesn't have to be a courier" and the person came back all apologetic.

What I'm hearing here is that if one beloved pet dies, all the others have to go too, like a pharaoh's servants and retainers.
