HC Deb 26 November 1958 vol 596 c57W
89. Mr. Prentice

asked the Minister of Defence what payments are now made towards the funeral expenses incurred by relatives of men or women who die while serving in Her Majesty's Forces; and whether he will consider making improvements in these payments.

Mr. Sandys

Unless the next of kin prefers to make private arrangements, the Service concerned makes all arrangements for the funeral and bears the full cost.
