On the 30th June 2018 my father died. I had not seen him for over 20 years and yet now I have to pay for his funeral. If I were on benefits the government would contribute towards the cost, but I am not receiving any. Yes he was my biological father and of course I want him to have a proper funeral but I cant afford it. I am his only next of kin so it all falls down to me.
I have not got the £3500 it is going to cost for the simple funeral. I now have the date for the cremation which is the 9TH August 2018 so lets hope that we can raise some funds by then.
