Funeral poverty


This is an old article... but I guess its a real issue that is being encountered in our churches... Has anyone good practice to share?
 
Funeral poverty is an unexpectedly potent indicator of the combined impact of recession, austerity, low wages and the insecure job market. The insurance company Sun Life Direct says funeral poverty has risen by 125% since 2010 – a figure it calculates by assessing the shortfall between the cost of funerals and people's ability to pay.
