Default funeral expenses

Hi Guys
Just wondered if anyone had any advice,As a family we tried to claim for funeral expenses as when mum died she had saved no money,and stupidly we didnt think about it.My dad died 8 years ago so me and my sis and bro are liable .We sent off a form but as i am the only sibling working the form says im liable has anyone had any experience of this and is it worth appealing.This couldnt come at a worse time as we are all still trying to come to terms of living without mum.Any advice greatly appreciated.

Default Re: funeral expenses

I can't comment about your individual circumstances but when my dad died we wern't in contact with my bro or sis so the social fund helped me with less than half the cost of the funeral. I think I was working then as a part time childminder but wasn't erning very much money at all.

Probably not too much help to you but I also wanted to say I know how you feel because the rest of the amount owed I had to pay for and It was a struggle.
