Many of the costs associated with a funeral are included within the Funeral Directors fee.  If you're not using a Funeral Director these costs will need to be considered when arranging the funeral.

Help in paying for funeral expenses

Help may be available if the person responsible paying for the funeral, or their partner are receiving certain benefits. You can check if you're eligible here.

Age UK and Citizens Advice may also be able to help.

If a person dies in hospital and no one is prepared to arrange and pay for the funeral, we may be able to assist with the costs and claim any expenses back from the estate.

If there is no estate, a basic funeral will be arranged which it may include the use of a unpurchased grave.
