How is the funeral paid for?
When someone is murdered in Queensland, the Department of Justice and Attorney General will cover the costs of the funeral up to the sum of $8,000. It is possible that the funeral director will be unaware of this process of payment, and in this case, you are most welcome to contact QHVSG.
Our staff can explain to the funeral director the method of payment.
Note that the headstone is a separate item to the funeral itself, and the Department of Justice and Attorney General (DJAG) will not reimburse you for this separately. Because of this, you may want to speak to your Funeral Director about having the headstone costed into the funeral as a package to ensure you are not hit with additional costs.
