Choosing a military veterans funeral
You may not have realised that your loved one is entitled to a military veterans funeral. Allow us to guide you.
Military and veterans funeral services
In partnership with Veterans Bereavement Support, Bennetts Funeral Directors are proud to arrange dignified, ceremonial, military, and veterans funerals.
Arranging a military funeral
Every man and woman who has served in the Armed Forces and Merchant Navy deserves a funeral that respects their own individual service to our Country over the years. Many veterans have indicated their wishes when writing their Wills, whilst others do not realise that they can have a military ceremonial funeral for their final journey.
Help with costs
Anyone who dies in military service should receive help from the Armed Forces with funeral costs. Alternatively, where the family prefers to organise a private funeral, the Ministry of Defence will provide a grant towards the cost. If further assistance is required, Veterans Bereavement Support provides a coordinated service and is able to offer expert advice on help with benefits, funeral payments, and widow/widower benefits to enable you to secure financial assistance at a time of greater need.
