Responsibility for the funeral
The person responsible for paying the funeral account is the one who signs the authorisation for the funeral to be conducted. A prepaid funeral plan will eliminate or reduce costs at the time of arranging a funeral, depending on the type of contract. See below for information on Who usually has responsibility for the funeral arrangements.
If you wish to discuss funeral costs in more specific detail, please feel free to contact us. We are always available for advice and there is never any obligation on your part.
The executor of the dead person is responsible for disposal of the body. If there is no executor, it is the responsibility of the most senior next of kin. In the circumstances that the next of kin does not want to be involved, the funeral can be treated as a destitute burial, conducted by the government contractor. In most situations the executor will be a family member and/or a person keen to implement the family's wishes concerning the funeral. However, situations arise in which conflicts occur within families and the executor is required to make the final decision.
The executor is not bound by any directions the dead person left in his/her will, except that the body may not be cremated if the dead person wished otherwise.

services of the funeral director (or other provider), including the services
of the funeral director and staff; embalming and/or other preparation of the
body, if necessary; use of the facilities required to a visitation or
ceremony; and vehicles, such as the hearse or limousine.
In most cases, the
funeral home will help to coordinate these services, but the charges may not
