    i told dad if he feels obliged he should organise funeral so he doesn't have regret or guilt, but that organising estate is too much given circumstances and dads age.

    I said u don't have to pretend he nice man to be respectful and have funeral, just very basic that any human should be entitled too.

    Let everyone know and make it clear that it will be basic, polite funeral and they can make up their own minds.

    Whoops I meant estate won't be considerable. Just a basic house less all the expenses.

    What happens if the gov't buries him? Are people still able to attend?

    Default Re: hypothetical - what do you do?

    I think organising a small funeral would be ok but issues with the estate can be time consuming and messy.

    I am assuming that your dad's cousin's children are adults now so really they should be dealing with estate especially if they are the ones who will benefit financially.

    I would let the public trustee sort out the estate, and wouldn't feel a duty to get involved.

    If the children want to minimise the costs which will come out the estate they will receive, then they can put their hands up to administer the estate, but it won't cost that much for the public trustee to administer a basic estate anyway.

    I dunno but i don't think so. I got impression he is handed over, put in a cardboard bix and burnt and buried without any one around. I think they tell u where he buried and he gets a basic cross or something?

    I remember reading an article about pauper's funerals organised by the state, and they still have a small service so people can attend. This was in NSW so not sure what happens state to state.

    They have to let police know by cob Monday, choices are hand body/rights over to police or agree to sort it out.

    Dad mentioned something about if he hands over body he has option of being informed of final resting place but what involvement before that I'm not sure.

    Pretty sure dad and uncle will bury him just out of respect was just wondering what other's would do. Financially its not a problem so its more a moral thing for them.

    I agree with this.
