- Have no existing life insurance;
- Passed away in a motor vehicle whether driver or passenger under the DVLA Categories B, B1, BAuto, B+E and C, C1 (see Guidance INS57P - Information on driving licences).

We offer our deepest sympathy because we know that this is a traumatic time having to cope with the loss of your child and trying to arrange the funeral. The condolence gift "Hugs from ELY" will offer some financial relief at a time when you won't be thinking straight. We aim to assess your request for help as quickly as possible as to whether you meet the criteria of ELY and aim to notify yourself and the funeral directors within 2 days of your request. We would kindly ask that you complete the contact form so we can hopefully help your family, when it really matters.
Some of the organisations we are connected with may also be able to help you with emotional and financial support
These are some of the Undertakers that are here to help you. If your undertaker is not listed please contact us.
