Child Funeral Charity

Arranging a funeral for a child is something no-one can imagine having to do. And at a very emotional time, financial pressures in paying funeral expenses can add to the distress.

Child Funeral Charity (CFC) assists families financially in England and Wales who have to arrange a funeral for a baby or child aged 16 or under. Whilst many funeral directors, the clergy and most celebrants do not charge fees, there are other funeral related expenses that bereaved parents struggle to find. Financial support is available from us to help with such funeral costs, together with practical advice and guidance.

CFC takes referrals and applications for financial support from professionals who have knowledge of the bereaved family and their circumstances.

Therefore if you are a:

  • Funeral Director
  • Celebrant or faith representative
  • Bereavement Nurse or Midwife
  • Hospice Manager
  • General Practitioner
  • Local Authority Registrar
  • Hospital Bereavement Officer
  • Hospital Medical Registrar, or
  • other professional

then you can refer bereaved families to us.

In order to provide financial support to as many bereaved families as possible, we are always fundraising. If you would like to support our activities, please click here.

A Charity like this is absolutely perfect to help families of children at the saddest time of their lives. When you are a family and bringing up children there is never any spare money and you never expect to have to have money to bury your child. You need all the help and financial support available and this Charity is perfect for just that."
