Help with arranging funerals

We'll arrange a funeral (burial or cremation) on behalf of anyone who dies within Birmingham City Council’s boundaries when no-one else is willing or able to arrange one.

If the person has died in hospital we may have an agreement in place for the Health Authority or Primary Care Trust to make the arrangements on our behalf – you should check with the hospital to see whether this is the case before contacting us.

You can read more about how we can help with funerals, including how to contact us, on the My Care in Birmingham website.
