Children’s Funeral

Arranging a child’s funeral is probably the most difficult task any parent can face. Having to comprehend the loss as well as sorting out the funeral and associated costs makes this time even more traumatic.

At The Midcounties Co-operative Funeralcare we provide as much support as possible to parents following a bereavement, and as part of this commitment, the funeral service we provide for your loved one is free of charge up to the age of 18 years old.*
