An official government programme, the Children’s Funeral Fund helps parents cover some of the funeral costs for children under 18 or if a baby is stillborn after the 24th week of pregnancy, no matter your family’s income or the amount you have in savings. The burial or ceremony must take place in England and covers:

  • Burial and cremation fees (including the cost of a doctor’s certificate)
  • Up to £300 to pay for a coffin, shroud or casket
