Children’s funerals

2 Children’s funerals

Please note the following pages are specifically designed for 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. Thoughts to consider

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. More information can be found about this here - gov.uk/child-funeral-costs. Children's Funeral Fund for England

• 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 (see page 62). 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.

Children’s coffin & casket collection

Themed picture coffins

With Children's Funeral Fund FREE OF CHARGE

Picture coffins enable you to create a personalised design to reflect your child’s special life. We have a wide range of designs for all ages, featuring favourite colours, different sports and popular characters. Should one of our many designs not be suitable, a full bespoke design service is available and can include family photographs or drawings. Nursery rhymes & bedtime stories

Children’s rhymes and stories can be a great starting point to gather inspiration. Be it a religious parable, a fairy tale or a nursery rhyme, the imagery within can produce a beautiful crib that holds a special meaning.

Cartoon characters & cherished toys Many youngsters have a special fondness for a specific character or favourite toy. An image of a particular teddy or doll which was cherished by your loved one or a particular game you shared together can become a special point of focus within any design.
