Our Funeral Director to look after the family on the day of the funeral and provision of necessary staff.
You as a family are always in charge and we are here to help and guide you through the procedure of all arrangements. You may wish to choose a different coffin or request additional services of which we are more than satisfied to guide you through.
We may help you with flowers, orders of service, music and catering arrangements and advise you of the costings at such time.
In 2019, The Childrens’s Funeral Fund for England was created by Prime Minister Theresa May. This can help to pay for some of the costs of a funeral for a child under 18 years or a baby stillborn, after the 24th week of pregnancy.
It is not means-tested; what you earn or how much you have in savings will not affect what you receive. These fees help towards the cost of cremation and burial fees and also for the cost of a coffin.
The claim will be made directly by us, the funeral director. (The burial or cremation must take place in England)
