Tips on searching for grants to help with funeral or headstone costs

If you are looking for help with funeral or headstone costs, help may be available to you from some charitable funds, if you meet the qualifying rules (eligibility criteria) for their help.

Our Grants Search does not tag charitable fund schemes by "funeral costs", “headstone” or “bereavement”.

To find charitable funds that may be able to help you, you need to search on all aspects of your circumstances that may be relevant – e.g. occupation (remember to think about the industries you have worked in as well as the jobs you have had), health conditions, nationality – using the filters of the Grants Search.

Once you have a list of charitable funds based on your search, check the profiles for information on who they help and what they help with.  

Some charities give grants according to individual need. If the profile doesn’t specifically state that the charity can't help with funeral costs, it may be worth contacting any charities that match your circumstances and background to ask if they can help.
