The death of a baby or child is a tragic event for the parents and their wider family and friends.
At Porteous Family Funeral Directors, we will do everything we can to advise and support the family during this time and will help to provide a fitting tribute to their short life.
We do not charge for arranging funerals for babies or children between the ages of 0-18.
For babies and very young children, we will supply a white casket shaped coffin, complete with chrome handles and name-plate. For older children, we will provide a standard coffin from our range. If the funeral is a burial, it will be fitted with cords. We will also provide the use of two vehicles – either our hearse if appropriate and another car for friends or family or alternatively, if parents do not want to use the hearse, they can travel with their child’s coffin to the funeral venue in another car. After the funeral, the car will take the parents onwards to a destination of their choice.
