Who has to pay for a funeral?

After losing your loved one, the questions that inevitably arise are; what are, how to cover, and who should cover the funeral costs? In the moment of sadness, a sense of duty starts to appear.

The person named in the deceased’s will as the executor is primarily responsible for all funeral arrangements.

In the absence of a Will, the probate court will appoint an appropriate person, usually the nearest relative. The costs, however, should come from the deceased person’s estate (savings, property, and other assets). But, if the person who passed away didn’t have any assets, the ‘executor’ is expected to plan and arrange funeral payments.
