Are you in an IVA ? If so then no loan will be possible. However I believe there may be some grants available, possibly through the local authority. You local CAB will be able to advise.
My opinions are merely that .. opinions based on experience. Always seek professional advice.

You can apply to the DWP for help towards the cost of funeral payment depending on your circumstances. gov.uk will give you links to the relevant benefits available

If necessary you could seek a payment break if necessary

If not in an IVA then see if you can take out one of the prepaid plans - if not, see if it can be factored in to your payments.

Sorry for your loss.

Is there nobody else in the family of the deceased that is responsible or can help pay towards this?

Perhaps your IP can allow you a payment break to help pay towards this and you can extend the IVA accordingly to pay back the arrears.
