Funeral Expenses Payment

The Funeral Expenses Payment is a payment from the Government which can help pay for some of the costs of the following:

  • Burial fees for a particular plot
  • Cremation fees, including the cost of the doctor’s certificate
  • Travel to arrange or go to the funeral
  • The cost of moving the body within the UK, if it’s being moved more than 50 miles
  • Death certificates or other documents

You can also get money for any other funeral expenses, such as funeral director’s fees, flowers or the coffin. How much you get will depend on your circumstances.

Please visit the Funeral Payment page on the website for information on eligibility and how to claim.
