Royal Air Force Brize Norton has responsibility for managing Repatriations.

A repatriation centre has been built on the southern side of the airfield to allow families privacy at their time of grief.

Individuals can register their email details so that they can receive notifications of when a repatriation is planned to take place.

A Memorial Garden has been built at Norton Way Carterton to allow a safe place for members of the public to show their respects when the Cortege passes. The Memorial Garden in Norton Way has been dedicated and trees planted. The Union Flag donated by Royal Wootton Bassett is flown at half mast from a flag pole on the day of a repatriation. At other times another Union Flag is flown.

At a nearby sports pavillion refreshments and toilets are available.
