Losing a baby or child is something that no parent should have to bear. Coming to terms with this tragic loss, parents are often faced with arranging the funeral and sorting out the financial affairs at the same time. At GreenAcres we understand how traumatic this can be and we will do all we can to help ease the pain in a professional and caring way.
In March 2018, Teresa May announced that bereaved parents will no longer have to pay extortionate funeral costs for babies and children up to the age of 18.
GreenAcres Cemetery and Ceremonial Parks welcomes the move and to further support this decision have extended their offering on free burials for babies at all six sites to include free single-depth graves up to the age of 18 years of age. The company will also waive the interment fee and any grave digging costs for both ashes and burials where applicable.
This will be based on a ten-year lease. However, families can choose to extend the lease further, at a discounted rate.
“We welcome the Government’s decision on child burials, in addition to free baby and child burials up to age of 18 we will also waive any associated digging fees as no parent should have to pay to bury their child. At GreenAcres Cemeteries and Ceremonial Parks our families can expect a caring and dignified service always!”
