Get Help with Funeral Costs
You could be entitled to a Funeral Expenses Payment (also called a Funeral Payment) if you get certain benefits and need help to pay for a funeral you are arranging. If you require further specific information regarding assistance with funeral payments, we will be happy to discuss these with you.
In order for us to keep our costs down we do require cleared funds three days prior to the cremation taking place (excluding DWP applications). This can be made by either bank transfer, cheque or cash.
