Who is responsible for the costs of a funeral?

The person arranging the funeral is financially responsible for it unless otherwise specified, and is the only person who can make arrangements with the crematorium or cemetery, including signing burial or cremation permits.

In some circumstances, the government may be able to arrange and pay for the funeral on your behalf. This might occur if, for example, the deceased has no money or assets available to pay for a funeral and/or there is no one else who is capable of arranging or claiming benefits for the funeral.
