Factors to be taken into account

Other factors

23.27Apart from the matters described above, the decision-maker should be free to take account of any other matters he or she considers relevant but must, finally, consider the likely size of the estate and its ability to cover the costs of the funeral and disposal decisions being made. As we described above, the estate should bear the reasonable costs of these matters, and so that should be considered by any decision-maker.

Recommendation

R118 A person making decisions relating to funeral arrangements, disposal of the body or how any remains should be dealt with must take account of the likely size of the estate and its ability to cover the costs of the decisions relating to funeral arrangements, disposal of the body and dealing with any remains.
