you. The first charge on your late father's estate is the payment of funeral
arranges the funeral is responsible for paying for it although they are able to
reclaim it from any money left by your father or to which he is entitled to.
there is no money, the local authority will pay for the funeral but you need to
get that agreed before instructing the funeral director or, advise the funeral
director that you have no money to pay for the funeral and neither does your
father and that it will therefore have to be arranged by the local authority.
They are used to doing this and will know who to contact.
regard to the pension, if some money does come to the children (which seems
highly likely on these facts) it should be used to repay the local authority
