When a child or baby dies



We conduct baby funerals for a local hospital which are arranged and paid for by the Hospital Trust. These funerals (both cremation and burial) involve a simple white coffin and a religious or non-religious service. For burials the family can choose to use the cemetery chapel or the entire ceremony can take place at the graveside.


Sometimes when a baby dies before full gestation parents are unable to attend the funeral. We ensure that the funeral is carried out with dignity and respect.


If you are having a private funeral, we can provide you with an estimate in respect of your specific wishes. We will keep the charges as low as possible for the funeral of a child or baby.


We can offer a small selection of coffins and caskets for babies and children. Please talk to us about your preference of coffin as there are a range of designs and prices.


There are a number of charities and organisations set up to help people when they lose a child or baby:


Child Death Helpline  |  0800 282 986 

A helpline for anyone affected by the death of a child of any age, from pre-birth to adult, under any circumstances, however recently or long ago.


Child Bereavement  |  01494 568 900 

Supports families and educate professionals both when a baby or child of any age dies or is dying, or when a child is facing bereavement.
