Caring for your loved one

When someone dies, it is essential that you know that they will be looked after with great care, dignity and respect. We have many years of experience in caring for the deceased and see it as a sacred trust, especially when caring for babies and children. You can be confident that, while with us, your loved one is completely safe and very well cared for.

Each Chapel of Rest provides a peaceful and tranquil atmosphere for families or friends who wish to spend private time with their loved one.

Individually designed

Our chapels are multi-faith, and we are privileged to look after people of many religious beliefs, or none, and to respect their traditions and customs.

For the families of babies and children, our trained staff are on hand to ensure that their precious child is lovingly cared for when they visit. Ask us for more details.

Saying goodbye to your precious child

Funerals for babies and children

The death of your precious child is a loss like no other. You may feel overwhelmed by the decisions you have to make at this time, and unprepared to make them. We are here to give you practical advice on what you need to do, and guide you through all the necessary formalities and arrangements. We will give you clear information about the choices you have, and help you make the decisions that are right for you.

Here to support you

You will need to decide on burial or cremation and whether you would prefer a religious or non-religious ceremony. You may wish to choose some music, and there are many beautiful readings and poems which are suitable for children.

The natural beauty of flowers helps to soften the occasion; and releasing a white dove symbolises perfect peace.

Our experienced team will support you through this difficult time, and you and your precious child will be given our personal attention and care leading up to the funeral. On the day, we will be there to make sure your wishes are carried out with dignity, and to provide calm reassurance and quiet strength to help you and your family cope with the ceremony. We understand that grieving does not end on the day of the funeral, and in the days and months afterwards we will continue to support you through your bereavement.

In recent years, releasing doves following a funeral ceremony has become more popular. It can give families a real sense of peace and help them move on to the next phase of their life together. To find out more, simply talk to your funeral arranger and they will be happy to help.
