Children and Babies

Death is something that affects us all, but the loss of a child is almost unbearable. It has an effect on each member of the family. As a family run funeral directors, over the years, it has been our privilege to be entrusted with looking after our families and guiding them through the arrangement process, especially in these delicate circumstances.

We always take the utmost care in every aspect of the arrangements, always mindful that our role is to guide and advise you but being aware that this child is yours. There is no restriction on your visiting your little one in our chapel as often as you wish, though this is done by appointment to allow for your privacy and ensure you can spend as long as you wish.

We do not charge for our services up to the age of 18 years which include:

  • Professional services
  • Transfer and care of the child
  • Ceremonial vehicle and staff
  • Coffin/Casket
Teddy Bears
