Greenwich

Death of a person with no finances

Funeral services provided by the Royal Borough of Greenwich

We will provide a basic funeral service to someone who dies within the Royal Borough with no finances. This does not mean that the service lacks the dignity of a normal funeral. The service is the same as you would receive from any undertaker.

Our only restriction is that we cannot provide a burial into a new private grave, burials have to take place in a common grave. The service provided at the crematorium is exactly the same as a normal funeral.
