Children’s Funeral Fund for England Announced

2nd July 2019 | News Regulations/Legislation

The Children’s Funeral Fund for England (CFF) was announced yesterday in the media, ahead of the Regulations establishing the scheme being laid today in Parliament. The scheme will come into force on 23rd July and Regulations will be released on the GOV.UK site.

“The Prime Minister has intervened to establish the Children’s Funeral Fund for England (CFF). Under the scheme, bereaved parents, guardians or carers will no longer pay the fees charged for a cremation or burial of a child under the age of 18, or certain associated expenses. Fees and expenses will be met instead by government funding with providers (burial/cremation authorities and funeral directors), in the main, claiming from the CFF the fees and expenses they would have otherwise charged to families.”
