Funded Funerals offers support to families on low income or claiming benefits. We are based in Lancashire but are able to support families wherever in the North West of the UK they may be.

We are able to assist UK wide subject to travel expenses.

What we offer:

We have considerable experience in dealing with the Department for Work and Pensions, and will help complete the necessary forms to apply for a funeral payment from the Social Fund, and can advise at an early stage whether a claim has the potential to succeed. By taking away some of the financial stress, families can concentrate on their loved one and the service they wish to provide for them.

Funded Funerals offers the following:

  • Bringing the person who has died into our care

  • Minimal hygienic treatment and preparation

  • The provision of a simple coffin suitable for burial or cremation

  • Dressing the person who has died in their own clothes or appropriate gown

  • Provision of an appropriate vehicle to convey the coffin

  • Collection of the cremated remains if appropriate

  • A meeting with our funeral arranger to discuss the arrangements

No Hidden Charges

Invoices are sent directly to the Social Fund to enable them to consider a claim. There is no guarantee that a payment will be made by the Social Fund or of the amount they will pay. In the event that an application fails, we will make arrangements with you to pay for the cost of the funeral.

You can get help towards the cost of a funeral if you or your partner are getting one of the following qualifying benefits or entitlements:

  • Universal Credit
  • Income Support
  • Income-based Job-seeker’s Allowance
  • Income-related Employment and Support Allowance
  • Pension Credit
  • Housing Benefit
  • Working Tax Credit which includes disability or severe disability element
  • Child Tax Credit at a rate higher than the family element
