It's the local council's responsibility to provide burial. They will try to trace the family first. In this case his known family is a minor, so can't be responsible for the costs. The council has first call on any money to help defray the cost of the burial.
The burial will be basic. No flowers, viewings etc.
A big but though. The council will not take over where arrangements have already been started. Who has arranged anything so far. If it was the lady he was with she could find herself liable and may be able to claim the money to defray her costs. But she would still end up the loser financially.
It's important your daughter doesn't take any of the aspects of arranging the funeral upon herself or she will make herself liable.
