Further Support and Resources

The loss of a loved one is one of the most difficult times of our lives, there are many organisations available to help by providing further support and resources.

If you require assistance towards the cost of the funeral there is a ‘Funeral Support Payment‘, this could help pay for funeral costs if you live in Scotland. It usually will not cover the full cost of the funeral but it could help pay for some costs.

We work with Life Ledger a company that specialises in helping you notify all the companies connected with the deceased from a single place. This saves you time and removes the need to repeat difficult conversations over and over again. This service is free of charge, and is intended to make this onerous task much easier.

Our fully trained staff are on hand to help in anyway we can, so please call us on 0800 996 1927 if there is anything we can do to help.
