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.


Even such is Time, that takes in trust Our youth, our joys, our all we have, And pays us but with earth and dust; Who in the dark and silent grave When we have wandered all our ways, Shuts up the story of our days; But from this earth, this grave, this dust, My God shall raise me up, I trust.

– Sir Walter Raleigh, explorer (1554-1618) –
