Funeral Fund

There has been a year-on-year increase in the number and cost of Public Health Act funerals across the UK, (costs have risen significantly for Local Authorities with the amount spent on Public Health Funerals rising to almost £5.4m in 2017/18)*. If this trend continues it is difficult to see how local authorities can continue to fund funerals from ever diminishing budgets.


How can the funeral fund subsidy help?

Local Authorities or NHS trusts can now ask Finders International for a funeral fund subsidy payment towards the cost of Public Health Act (PHA) funerals. These will be cases where there genuinely are no known next of kin (rather than next of kin simply refusing to pay) and Finders will carry out research to confirm this.

At Finders International giving back to the community is an important part of our ethos and culture as an ethical organisation. This is why we have decided to establish the Finders International Funeral Fund to help with funeral costs of certain deceased individuals.
