Children's and Babies' Funerals

The loss of a child or baby can be one of the most painful experiences anyone can face.  We understand that arranging an infant funeral is something no parent wants to undertake, so we are there to support and guide you at every step of the way.

It is important not to feel pressured about arrangements and to take time to mourn in private.  When you are ready we can provide the guidance and support you need to help get you through. 

We are also able to help after the funeral and can help ensure that you can talk in confidence to someone who understands how you are feeling.

Terms and Conditions

We understand how difficult a time it can be to arrange the funeral of a loved one, as well as considering covering the costs.

In recognition of this we will never ask for any type of deposit or ‘upfront fees’ before a funeral service takes place. We allow those using our services the time to arrange your finances, providing a detailed estimate of the funeral cost before the service takes place. This allows you to focus on the funeral ceremony, without a need to pay any deposit or upfront fees.

We will write to the family before the funeral confirming all dates, times and details of the arrangements and include a fully itemised estimate with the confirmations.

We do not require any type of deposit or ‘upfront’ payment. An invoice will be sent 7 days after the funeral.

Please see our pricing for more specific information.

If you have any concerns financially or would need extra time to pay for a funeral, please contact us, as we are always willing to help in any way possible.


Thank you for the excellent service you have given me over the last 5 or 6 weeks. You were a pleasure to deal with both during the planning process when your suggestions were always pertinent and helpful (and we were even able to enjoy a little humour!!) right the way through to the events on the 15th & 16th December when everything was done perfectly – just as we had discussed. 

Thank you, John, – your help was much appreciated.


I chose Pearce Funeral Services from the internet yellow pages. From the time I rang to make the enquiry John Pearce could not have been more helpful or sympathetic. My husband’s body needed to be brought from Wales to Swindon for the cremation and this was dealt with dignity and compassion as were the rest of the arrangements. 

John Pearce dealt with the cremation with professionalism, dignity and sympathy which impressed family and friends alike. I would have no hesitation in recommending Pearce Funeral Services to anyone who wants the best possible farewell to a loved one.
