When a German relative died, the close family got a few cards from other Germans, but not a single one with money in it (I handled the cards and would have noticed). It would actually have helped.
I've never heard of a German custom of giving money for a funeral!

 

I think it's custom to give money in some parts of Germany. When my parents died we received money from relatives in the South and from people from Muenster but nothing from people that came from the Cologne area.

People give money in my village too, not so far from Berlin. It's a gesture to help out with all the expenses. I was surprised to be given some too on my mum's death, even though she was not buried here.
