Funerals for Babies

Funerals for babies are an exceptionally difficult and emotional occasion. Many bereaved parents feel immense grief when they experience the loss of a pregnancy or a baby, as it can represent not only the end of a much-awaited dream but also the potential loss of an unborn child or grandchild.

It is important to remember that funerals for babies offer closure and provide an opportunity for family members to recognise and appreciate the brief life that has been taken too soon. While it can be heartbreaking, planning a funeral for babies with respect and care is the best course of action to help families cope with their grief in the days following their unimaginable loss.

At Personal Farewells, it’s our privilege to provide funeral services that are specifically catered to the needs of families who have experienced such a tragedy. We understand and appreciate the unique nature of this situation, which is why we strive to ensure our clients can honour their lost babies with specialised funeral arrangements.

We work closely with the family to provide a fitting service tailored just for them. All our funerals are conducted discreetly, with respect and dignity in order to give families a chance to say goodbye in the best way they can.

Funerals for Babies

Funerals for a baby can feel like an incredibly difficult time, as family and friends seek to pay tribute to their loved ones in a meaningful way. When considering the type of funeral that is appropriate during this difficult event, it is important to consider a range of factors.

Religious Beliefs

For families who are mourning the loss of an infant, funeral services provide an important opportunity to come together and collectively grieve. Having a formal ceremony can help with the healing process and is often deeply linked to the family’s religious beliefs. Depending on the religion, such funerals may include special prayers or rituals to express grief and ensure that this little life’s journey is sacredly remembered.


Funerals for babies can be a difficult time, and personalisation is an important aspect of giving these special little ones the fitting send-off they deserve. It is possible to incorporate the baby’s personality and favourite things into the service, whether it be a special song, photo or artwork, or simply memories shared by family and friends that reflect upon the short life lived.

As part of our commitment to meeting our client’s needs, we provide a range of options so our clients can give their babies the send-off they truly deserve.

Some of the options we offer include:

  • Private viewing at our viewing room
  • Arranging hand, feet and finger prints for keepsake memorial options
  • Options for special moments and memories such as meaningful photos

Incorporating personal touches helps both grievers and celebrators honour the memory of their beloved baby in a unique way, which may make this challenging time a bit easier to bear.

To provide valuable support throughout the grieving process, we’re available 24/7 with personalised support and maintain open and reassuring communication whenever you may need it.


Family members must make a decision on what works best for them emotionally at such a sensitive time, this can range from a small intimate ceremony to a larger occasion.

For families grieving the loss of a baby, attending a funeral service can be an important way for them to honour the life of their infant and find some closure from the tragedy. It is often difficult to process and understand the circumstances of such losses, and a funeral service for many is an important part of accepting it and moving forward. Although it can be overwhelming, attending a beloved baby’s funeral can also offer comfort and peace knowing that they amazed loved ones up until their heartbreaking passing.

Grief Counselling

Grieving the death of a baby can be an incredibly traumatic and painful experience. As such, it is important for those affected to seek out appropriate grief counselling that can help them with healing. Grief counselling provides bereaved family members with the emotional support they need to process and cope with their loss. It helps families discuss their feelings of pain and sadness, as well as connect with others who have experienced similar situations. Through compassionate dialogue and therapeutic techniques, many find that it helps them discharge deep emotional trauma during this difficult time.

Ultimately, deciding on exactly what should be done isn’t an easy decision, but families should find solace in honouring and celebrating their beloved child through the experience of a meaningful funeral service.
