Professional Services - taking care of all necessary legal and administrative arrangements for your child's funeral:

Support is available from the Children’s Funeral Fund, which can help pay for some of the costs of a funeral for a child under 18 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 the help available. Your Funeral Director will be able to help with the application
If you have other funeral expenses, you might be able to apply for Funeral Expenses Payment to cover them. You or your partner must be getting certain benefits - check if you’re eligible for Funeral Expenses Payment.
