Although everyone is aware that the funeral count has to be paid, we at Lethborg Funeral Services try to keep everything as personal as possible, and we actually take the account to the family in the weeks after the funeral so that we are able to see how they are coping with their loss.
This also gives the family the opportunity to be able to ask us questions face to face regarding the account, and to make any financial arrangements with us. In some instances, the expenses will be taken out of the estate of the deceased, and we forward on the account to the appropriate company handling the estate.
For those on a pension, Government benefits are available to help with the cost of the funeral. Social Security can inform you of these, or we at Lethborg Funeral Services can assist.
