Undergrad degree 2:1.
I'm about to commence a masters, if I get a merit only, what are my chances of getting phd funding?

In the UK.
The university in the UK is a strong one if it makes any difference.

Thank you.

Did you do good research? A PhD is mainly about research, if you can prove that you did a good job there (good reference letters?) the coursework results are not that important.

Universities usually have some rules what you need to start a PhD, and typically you can look them up or ask the universities. Exceptions are often possible for very good candidates. Where "good" is about the research done.
