Military Funerals

Welcome to the Army Rumour Service, ARRSE

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial military website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Just a quick question, are funerals for service personnel killed in action payed for by the military? Sorry if this is in the wrong place, feel free to meve as required. Thanks for your help
     
  2. Anyone who dies in military service is entitled to a service funded funeral with full military honours, but if the family prefer they may arrange a private funeral and receive a grant from the JCCC. If the family elect to receive a military funeral, the JCCC will also offer to provide a military pattern headstone or urn plot marker to place on the grave or an entry in the crematorium book of remembrance if a cremation takes place and ashes are retained or scattered.
     
  3. Thanks for the info, RedLeg, just what I thought.
