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.

"As an engaged couple with a portfolio of rental properties, we wanted to make sure that we were both well provided for if anything ever happened to one of us, and we were also worried about Inheritance Tax. Our financial advisor recommended that we seek advice from Will Written. Gina was very organised and reassuring. She explained everything to us very clearly. We know where we stand and we found out a lot that we didn't know before. Having made our wills, we feel we have nothing to worry about, we are happy that we have been sensible and haven't put off making our wills unnecessarily. "
