We are responsible for arranging the funeral of a person who has died within the borders of the Bolsover District if no suitable arrangements have been or are being made for the funeral. This is called a public health funeral.
Before we can arrange for the burial or cremation, the death must be registered.
Unfortunately, we do not have any grants available to assist with funeral costs, nor can we help with a funeral that has already taken place.
If you are on a low income and claim certain benefits then you may be entitled to financial help with the costs associated with the funeral. Gov.uk may be able to offer financial help towards the cost of the funeral.
