Help with paying for funerals

When someone dies it can be a very distressing time for those arranging a funeral, especially if there are concerns about how the funeral is to be paid for.

If you are concerned about how you are going to pay for a funeral, it is important that you discuss this with your chosen funeral director at an early stage in the arrangements. Please be aware that once you have entered into a contract with the funeral director you will be responsible for paying their costs.
