If your dad was an honorably charged veteran of the U.S. Military he can be buried for free with a marker in a number of cemetaries across the country. Perhaps a funeral home will make all the arrangements and allow you to pay over time? I am so sorry for your loss. I know that the worry your having can only be compounding your grief. The more people you let know of your dilemna the more likely you will be to find help! I will pray that the people of your community find a way to help you and yours to bury your Dad.

I'm so sorry for this.

I had faced the same problem when my beloved "Jem" passed away. Fortunately her friends stepped in and helped with the $ to have her cremated. I have yet to fly usr to my family's plot in OH to bury her cremains. That should happen in early July.

I have learned to get a small burial policy so my children won't have to face that problem.

I am sooo ssorry for your loss. I too was faced with the delimma when my husband passed away 2 years ago, no insurance, no money, it was so very stressful and upsetting. My prayers are with you that the Lord leads you in the right direction…

I'm sooo sorry for your loss! Maybe you can go to your local church the larger ones usually have funds to help people in need! Ask if the church can do a fund raiser or something and most people who go to the church will give. Id ask the pastor for help. Suggest a fund raiser for that Sunday after church. I know large churches have funds and things to help people!do you have any family at all to help? If not do try large churches. They just might be able to help you! I wish you the very best and I'm sooo sorry! If I had the money id help but I do not. I'm on ssi and living day to day! I hope this helped in some way! Please keep us posted on what's happening ok? I will pray for you! I'm sorry you have to go through this! God bless.

Maybe you could try getting help from a bank for immediate help then hold a bake sale or something to pay back the bank later?
