Help with funeral fees

Pre-paid-funeral plans: A pre-paid funeral plan will ease the burden of paying for a funeral that comes unexpectedly or at a time when finances are strained. Please do consider Turnbulls competitive pre-paid funeral plans.

Government funds: It may be that you are eligible for a funeral payment from the Government’s Department of Social Security Funeral Fund. You should ask us for the form, SF200, which should be filled in and sent to the DSS prior to the funeral taking place.

For further information see Funeral Payment from the Social Fund.



Poem

Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die. I have sent up my gladness on wings, to be lost in the blue of the sky. I have run and leaped with the rain, I have taken the wind to my breast. My cheeks like a drowsy child to the face of the earth I have pressed. Because I have loved life, I shall have no sorrow to die.


– Amelia Burr, American poet (1878 – 1968) –
