Need advice on what financial support is available when someone dies? You are not alone.
When a relative or loved one dies with no financial plans in place, it is difficult to know what to do.
The Royal London National Funeral Index found that in 2020 only one in five (21%) of those who arranged a funeral used a funeral plan.
A third (33%) used savings, 23% had to borrow money from friends or family to pay for the funeral, and nearly one in ten (9%) had to take out a loan, or go into debt, in order to cover the cost.
Here Angela, the funeral director at Caledonia Cremation, shares some advice on where to start and what help is available.
