We’re with you every step of the way…

Children’s Funerals

 If you need to arrange a funeral for a child, whether it’s for a baby lost during pregnancy or a child up to the age of 18, our experienced team at Remembrance are here to help and guide you every step of the way. Our team have worked closely with Royal Manchester Children’s Hospital – Stacey has looked after many bereaved families who have sadly lost a child.

 At Remembrance we do not charge our professional services fees for anyone who is under 18 years of age.

You may choose to add other services to your child’s funeral such as

  • Horse drawn funerals
  • Dove Release
  • Memory Bears
  • Orders of service

These are just a few of the additional services available; your funeral director, Stacey, will guide you through all the additional choices we can offer – we will endeavour to provide whatever you would like.

Where we can, we aim to provide additional services free of charge or offer reductions in standard fees in order to ease financial pressure during the very difficult time of losing your baby or child.

However, where additional services are provided by third party providers, we cannot guarantee that there will be no additional costs – this is up to the third party to decide.

Our bright and beautiful premises are accessible to everyone, regardless of where you live, as we offer home visits and a free pick-up service for people wanting to visit us to make arrangements or spend time with their loved one, whilst they are in our care.

 

Remembrance offers its services to people throughout Greater Manchester and surrounding Glossop. Our team live across the whole of this area, and many families choose to use us, even when we aren’t the closest funeral director to them because they have previously experienced the amazing care and support from Stacey, or they have been recommended by other families that have used us. You can still use our services, even if we aren’t on your doorstep, and benefit from our personalised, fair-priced funerals.

We will happily meet you at your home to sort out the funeral arrangements, and it helps, we can collect you to visit and spend time with your loved one in our Remembrance Room. Wherever you live, we are a caring, professional and customer-focussed team and we will always be as accessible to you as if we were just round the corner from you.
