Children's funerals


When a baby or child dies, it is one of the most devastating things that can happen. We recognise how deeply distressing this can be for you and your family. We want you to know that we are here to help, guide and support you in whatever funeral you decide for your baby or child. Children's funerals


CHILDREN'S FUNERAL FUND The UK government has created the Children's Funeral Fund for England which means that a funeral for a child under 18 or a baby stillborn after the 24th week of pregnancy can be arranged without worrying about some of the costs. These include burial or cremation fees, medical certification and a coffin or casket (up to the value of £300). You don't have to worry about claiming for this fund, our team will do all of this on your behalf. In the event that your baby doesn't qualify for the Children's Funeral Fund (for example, a loss before 24th week of pregnancy), speak to your funeral consultant who will be able to support you. More information can be found about this here - .

In addition to the Children's Funeral Fund for England, we have opted to include the following services for children under the age of 18 or a baby stillborn after the 24th week of pregnancy free of charge: • Necessary legal and administrative arrangements • Collection and bringing into our care • Care and attention • Transport to venue in our hearse or other appropriate vehicle • Reflection room visits • Some third-party fees. Speak to one of our funeral consultants for details.


THOUGHTS TO CONSIDER • Making a memory box can be very helpful and mean different things to different people. It can be a place to store your special keepsakes such as photos, a letter you have written, baby clothes, artwork or a favourite toy • A lock of hair may be able to be taken for a personal keepsake • Toys, photographs, letters, flowers etc. can be placed in the coffin • Consider what your baby or child could be dressed in. This maybe a favourite outfit, baby-grow, jeans/tshirt etc • An estate car or limousine can be used for a baby or small child, instead of a hearse • For a baby’s burial, ribbons can be used to lower the coffin into the grave

• At the funeral, our colleagues can wear colourful ties, instead of black • If the baby or child is to be buried, there are a wide range of memorials available from teddies, fairies, Superman, cars etc. (subject to local terms and conditions) • Themed personalised coffins/cremated remains caskets can be made with a favourite Disney or TV character, a rainbow, a favourite holiday photograph etc. (subject to local terms and conditions) Please remember, whatever you choose for your baby or child, we are here every step of the way for you from the funeral arrangement and beyond with our Bereavement Care team. We realise you may need us just as much after the funeral, as during the funeral arrangement itself, and we will be here to help.



Transport for the funeral service

The final journey can be an emotional and poignant part of the service and often families look to personalise this by selecting a vehicle to reflect the personality of their child. We have a wide range of transport options available to help you create a unique and fitting tribute. Prices are available on application and will include all necessary personnel to conduct the funeral.
