Surrey Registration Service Bereavement Guide

Children’s Funeral Fund for England The Children’s Funeral Fund for England (CFF) was implemented on 23 rd July 2019. Under the CFF arrangements, the fees charged for the cremation or burial of a child under the age of 18 or a still-born child will be free to parents at the point of need and will be claimed by burial and cremation authorities directly from the CFF. The scheme will also cover the price of a coffin, shroud or casket up to £300 as well as some funeral expenses. These expenses will be claimed by the funeral director but can also be claimed by the bereaved family where they choose not to use the services of a funeral director.
