You can have an individual cremation service which a Crematorium cost is £111.00 at one particular crematoria, you can have baby's remains buried in the Garden of Remembrance or in a family grave.If you prefer a cremation You can also provide a baby urn for baby's ashes which they will give back to you usually the next day. Then you can decide in your own time where baby's final resting place will be to scatter the ashes.

 

3.If you prefer a burial you can bury in an existing family grave if you have the deeds. Cost can vary, to open up the grave a couple of years ago it was £80.00 or you can purchase a new one which at the moment the fee can be £967.00 then you will own the grave deeds. some plots hold 2 adult sized coffins or 4 large coffins.

Buying a new family plot Speak to your local council who will tell you the contact numbers of your chosen graveyard/ cemetary Depending on the churchyard or area if there is lots of spaces You can sometimes choose the plot ie near a tree or near a huge stone to find it easier later one.
