Releasing funeral funds

Unfortunately, funerals are a large and unexpected expense. It's easy to be caught unaware. It is possible to release funds from the account of the deceased to pay for funeral expenses. These funds may be released before the formal administration of the estate is complete.

Funds cannot be released for certain expenses, such as the headstone until we receive the Grant of Representation.

Documents we need to release funeral cost funds

  • Certified copy of the death certificate
  • Written request from the executors or from the next of kin for payment
  • An itemised invoice from the funeral directors
