‘Child and Baby Funeral Choices’

Dealing with the death of a baby or child can be harrowing, even for experienced funeral directors. A new education seminar looks set to offer invaluable help and support.

The Child Funeral Charity is hosting the ‘Child and Baby Funeral Choices’ event at GreenAcres Burial Park in Buckinghamshire on Wednesday 6 July. Since launching in 2014, the Child Funeral Charity has promoted the need for information on all choices that should be offered to families at this most tragic time.

A full list of speakers are still to be confirmed but the current list includes: ‘Special Care Cremations’, John and Jemma Walsh; ‘Natural Burial for Child and Baby Funerals’, Peter Taylor – GreenAcres Burial Parks; ‘Ceremonies for Child and Baby Funerals’, Anne Barber, Civil Ceremonies; ‘Infant Cremation Update’, Tim Morris, Institute of Cemetery and Crematorium Management, Mary Tomes Colourful Coffins; and ‘The Wider Family’, Carole Henderson, Grief Recovery (UK).

The £75 delegate fee includes all talks, workshops, an optional tour of the site, certificates of attendance for CPD purposes, refreshments, lunch, and car parking. Numbers are limited so book early. The event will take place on Wednesday 6 July from 10am to 4pm at GreenAcres Burial Park-Chiltern, Potkiln Lane, Jordans, Beaconsfield, Buckinghamshire HP9 2XB.
