Help With Funeral Costs

The Council’s welfare team have developed a booklet providing information on funeral and other costs as many people may experience financial worries following a bereavement, particularly if they have less money coming in that they had previously.  

It is designed to provide advice and assistance with the benefits that are available following a bereavement, showing how someone may be eligible and how those benefits can be claimed.

It provides details on:

  • Bereavement support payment
  • Funeral Support Payment
  • War Widow’s or Widower’s Pension
  • Tell us Once bereavement notification service
