The Department for Works and Pensions
The Funeral Payment can help pay towards the following:
If the person who died had a pre-paid funeral plan, you’ll only get help for items not covered by the plan.
To apply for a payment towards the funeral you must be the partner, parent, children or close relative/friend of the deceased.
To be eligible for a claim you must apply within three months of the funeral date, you can apply by filling in a form online or over the phone.
Please note this is the maximum amount that they will contribute towards the funeral, unfortunately they cannot pay for the full funeral costs. Please see the Department of Works and Pensions website for further information https://www.gov.uk/funeral-payments/overview.
