Our Bereavement Services Department is currently experiencing high volumes which are resulting in prolonged delays. We sincerely apologise for this. If you have sent in a request we will do our best to get to it as soon as possible. For urgent queries please contact our dedicated Open24 Bereavement Line on 01 212 4077.
Unfortunately, funerals are a large and unexpected expense. It's easy to be caught unaware. It is possible to release funds from the account of the deceased to pay for funeral expenses. These funds may be released before the formal administration of the estate is complete.
Funds cannot be released for certain expenses, such as the headstone until we receive the Grant of Representation.
To learn more about releasing funeral funds, contact our dedicated Bereavement Services Team.
