Public health funerals

The law says that if someone dies and there is nobody to make arrangements for their funeral, the council must arrange a funeral for them.Image of a lily

Funeral costs are the first expenses claimed on any estate, and we can collect any money belonging to the deceased to help pay for the funeral.

If the person didn't leave a will and there are no known next of kin, we will refer the estate, minus our funeral costs, to the Treasury Solicitor, who deals with the estates of people who die with no will and no next of kin.

Although this is quite rare, it does happen from time to time. To the right is a list of people who have died in Powys with no next of kin.
