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.


Death be not proud, though some have called thee Mighty and dreadfull, for, thou art not so, For, those, whom thou think'st, thou dost overthrow, Die not, poore death, nor yet canst thou kill me.

– John Donne (1572-1631) –
