Arranging your child or baby's funeral


Arranging your child or baby’s funeral

I am so sorry you find yourself here, thinking about how to arrange your baby or child’s funeral.

Alongside your chosen Funeral Director, I am here to help guide you through the process of planning the unfathomable… your precious child’s funeral service.

It would be such an honour to journey alongside you through these difficult days.

I could come to your home, and spend time with you and your family, understand your hopes, hear all about your precious child and help you to plan their personal service.

For your child’s service it could be:

  • A more informal service
  • The room layout could be changed to make it more intimate, like the chairs in a semi-circle
  • Themed e.g. princess, favourite tv show, vehicles, animals
  • A main colour worn and featured
  • Read your child their final bedtime story
  • Their special items could be on display, like a teddy
  • Play to them special songs
  • A bespoke service booklet

When you are ready to leave, I will stay close to your child, and then I will personally pass them into the care of the staff nearby.

A cremation service for your child can be made to be very intimate and personal to you and your family. 

Siblings and young children can be included in the service through creative elements such as their own special table with crafts on.

Thank you so much for leading the service last week & also for the lovely pack from the day.

We really appreciate the time, care and thought you put into it all.

I offer my personal services and experience without cost, and only ask for a 50% fee so that my expenses are covered.
