How to Pay for a Loved One's Funeral Without Going Into Debt

Video Blog: How to Pay for a Funeral Without Going Into Debt

It's a terrible time when you've just been bereaved, and the last thing you need is practical worries about paying for the funeral.

I was prompted to make this video my some very silly urban myths that were perpetuated in a recent popular TV drama. The storyline was about a family who'd just lost a close relative, and the worries they had about paying for her funeral.

It was a great bit of entertainment, but it contained some utter nonsense! For example, that a deceased person's bank account can't be accessed to pay for their funeral, because you need to go through Probate first. And even, that it's "illegal" to access a deceased person's bank account to pay their funeral bill! It's rather irresponsible to broadcast false information like this, even in a drama. The audience is bound to include recently bereaved people, who might believe what they see on the TV, only adding to their stress.

"I am a retired divorcee with a complicated family situation. Allowing my estate to be distributed in line with to the intestacy rules when I am gone would not have been a fair reflection of my wishes, so I knew it was vital that I make a will. I wanted to ensure that particular members of my family were provided for. I also have a child who is self-employed, and I was worried about providing for her in case her business failed and her inheritance was seized by the Insolvency Service. Will Written have created an estate plan for me that places my assets into a trust when I am gone, so that the trustees can manage my assets and keep them in the family."
