Arranging a child’s funeral is probably the most difficult task any parent, carer or guardian can face. If you are in this position, we offer you our heartfelt sympathies but be reassured that we are here to help you through this difficult time. As a company, we understand that any family losing a child that is just starting out in life is unexpected, and finances may be limited. Therefore we provide all the elements of our services as set out below, without charge. Should you wish to alter any of the components included, a small fee may be involved, but we will always inform you of this before the funeral. Many costs related to funerals for children are covered by the ‘Children’s Funeral Fund’, which is government funded.
N.B. To be eligible for the CFF, a child must be under 18 at the time of death or stillborn after the 24th week of pregnancy, and the burial or cremation must take place in England.
A dedicated Funeral Arranger to guide and support you through the arrangements and assist with all legal and administrative procedures.
*Attendance to other hospitals will incur a mileage fee of £1 per mile.
