Bereaved parents will no longer have to pay the cost of their child’s burial or cremation after the Children’s Funeral Fund for England opened.
Through the scheme, funeral providers will be able to directly claim burial or cremation costs, as well as a contribution towards the cost of a coffin, so that parents do not need to worry about managing these expenses. Parents can also claim directly from the scheme if they choose not to use a funeral director.
Details of the scheme have been published on GOV.UK. Follow the link below to find out more.
