On a personal note, I totally feel for people in this situation and do wonder what avenues have actually been tried.

My great grandfather died seemingly alone, and his death certificate noted no children.  He actually had 5.  No one knows what happened to his belongings after he died in hospital.  There is no law surrounding that either.

Does anyone know whether Thomas had a second name and his YOB?

I might have found the names of his siblings  (and parents)... whether any are still alive is another thing as they were born between 1930 and 1936 ...

Seems to that if the funeral director is acting at the request of a social worker then it is the responsibility of the social worker's employer to foot the bill.
