Children's Funerals 

At Brooks, we understand that planning a funeral for an infant is a task that no parent wants to undertake. Unfortunately, because of stillbirth, early infant demise, sudden infant death syndrome, or any number of other reasons, you may find yourself doing just that. Take the time that you need to grieve, and enlist as much help as possible, as you plan a funeral that gives your child the proper memorial and honour as a member of your family and a part of your life. 
How to Plan for your Child's Funeral 
Take Your Time 
Take time to grieve for your loss. Do not allow the hospital to pressure you into making any decisions before you feel ready. Take your time and ask for help when you need it. Losing an infant is a traumatising experience, so give yourself and your partner time to mourn the loss privately. Once you feel ready, contact us, and we can guide you through the options. 
Choose a Service That's Right for You 
Talk to your family and decide what type of burial or cremation service you would like for your infant. Consider your own personal beliefs, your comfort level and your religious beliefs, as you choose the type of funeral. Your family may already have a burial plot available for you to use, or you may decide to purchase one. However, many people choose a cremation in order that they can keep the ashes close to them at home. 
Large or Small, the Choice is Yours 
You may want a private funeral or choose to include all family members. Some families want to grieve with a full funeral. Much depends on the age of the child and the circumstances of death, and of course everything is your choice. 
Fitting Tributes for your Lost Little One 
Prepare tributes to your infant, to be completed by friends and family members, as part of the service. You could release balloons, release doves, scatter flowers, write a letter, listen to a special song, or have a moment of silence. Make your own traditions depending on your comfort level and personal beliefs. In the years to come, the tribute will become a touching reminder of the funeral service and the support of your friends and family members who cared for and loved your infant. 
How Much Will It Cost? 
We offer a basic funeral for babies and children throughout North London, with a simple coffin, a hearse and a limousine. For this there is no charge. 
 
The only charges that may incur are cemetery or crematorium fees, ministers fees (if you choose to have one), and hospital fees. Should you require a more elaborate service, we can provide an individual quotation.
