Arranging a funeral for a child is something no-one can imagine having to do.
Our funeral directors are experienced in dealing with situations where children have passed away, we offer a full service for this type of funeral and will discuss any ideas and thoughts you may have.
The majority of the costs involved in arranging a child's funeral are either waived or reduced, although there may be some elements over which we have no control. During the funeral arrangements, we will discuss these things with you.
We have a full range of coffins available for children, ranging from a simple white casket, through to appropriately sized coffins that match those on our coffins page.
A traditional hearse is sometimes not appropriate for the funeral of a child, particularly if very young. In these instances, the coffin my be carried with the family in a limousine, or we have a customised hearsette, which enables the parents to sit either side of the child's coffin.
If you need financial assistance in paying for the funeral of a child, ask us to refer you to The Child Funeral Charity.
If you are receiving a qualifying benefit, you may be able to receive assistance from The Social Fund. See https://www.gov.uk/funeral-payments/eligibility for further information.
