Can I get help with the funeral costs?

 You may receive help if you are on a low income and there is not enough money to pay for the funeral arrangements. 

If you or your partner are receiving Income Support, Tax Credits or certain other Benefits, then you may be eligible for a Funeral Payment.

The DirectGov website explains eligibility, what you could get and how you can apply.
