WALSAVE CREDIT UNION FUNERAL LOANS

Walsave Credit Union is a non-for-profit financial co-operative for people living or working in the Walsall area. In many circumstances we are able to make loans to people in Walsall who are unable to meet the costs of a funeral.

If the costs associated with the death of a family member are beyond your savings then contact Walsave. For new members, loans for funerals can be up to £3,000, dependent on ability to repay. These loans are normally paid directly to the funeral director. There is no joining or administration fee and repayments can be spread over 36 months.

To arrange an appointment phone 01922 653310 and explain that you are asking for a loan to meet funeral expenses.
