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.
