To ask Her Majesty's Government whether the Children's Family Fund for England will cover the same expenses as those covered by the Social Fund Funeral Payment.
5 June 2018
The Government is committed to ensuring that all families who lose a child are given the support they need. That is why we have announced the establishment of a Children’s Funeral Fund for England, with the intention that no bereaved family will have to pay for the essential costs of burying or cremating their child. The detailed policy is under development and will be announced in due course.
